Hello all. My brother sent me a shot of a wader for identification, and I
had to tell him I was unsure. It was taken at the Western Treatment Plant in
Victoria. The picture is on my pbase site at 

It is the largish wader in the centre. The picture is not great but should
be good enough for some comments. My only thought was possible Ruff,
because it's Larger than Curlew and Sharp-tailed Sandpipers; rather
featureless plumage; bill slightly longer than head length.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers Steve Murray
