The photos remind me of Common Redshank, especially the first photo in
flight with the extensive trailing white on the wing.  It is certainly not
a tattler.  Even the second photo would agree with Redshank with the
general shape and the eyebrow, etc.  However, it should have red legs and a
red base to the bill.  I am at work and so I don't have my copy of HANZAB
to lookup juvenile Common Redshank.

I haven't seen Common Redshank for a few years.

I have forwarded the photos to Tony Palliser in Sydney for his comments.

Has anyone else on birding-aus seen the photos?
