from your description the wader on Frankston beach sounds to me like a
Grey-tailed Tattler. Common Sandpiper is possible but these have shorter
legs than you describe, have an obvious white wing bar, and teeter when

Is it still about? You should point it in the direction of Mud Islands - it
would be happier there.
