Forgive me for asking for your expertise once again.  On a recent trip to Darwin we saw a few shorebirds/waders, and being novices in this department we would like some help with id. 

Most particularly for a plover-ish type that I originally thought was a Sanderling, but it's been pointed out that the legs are too long and the beak not right.  You will see it in the first four or five photos here, beside what we believe to be a Pacific Golden Plover in partial moult. 

Go to:

I've also included other photos of waders, including Bar-tailed Godwit, Eastern Curlew, Whimbrel, Greenshank with their id in the caption.  If we have any of these wrong, please let me know too.

Thanks! Janine & Roger
