Stuart -

Showed the pics to David Eades here who confirms Red Knot.  He says that
Frankston beach is definitely unusual, but that the time of year is right
for young (first year) birds arriving down south for the first time to try
a few odd places before settling on one of the more traditional
non-breeding sites.  The bird might also have been passing through
Frankston on a journey to New Zealand.

Cheers,  Hugo.
