It most certainly is not a Broad-billed, because the bill shape is all wrong, amongst other things. It looks perfectly consistent with Curlew Sandpiper, which is by far the most likely candidate. A Dunlin would be an extraordinary rarity, and I would expect it to look a lot darker and more contrasty in plumage.

Cheers, Chris.
