Wood sandpiper? - Dagenham, UK

From this grey morning. Not best quality but think there is enough detail for ID. I thought Wood sandpiper as no wing markings and white underneath. Grateful for ID.

thanks

Paul

Black underwings along with lack of obvious supercilium and lack of obviously projecting feet would make this a Green Sand' I would think.

Indeed a Green Sanpiper Paul - they'll be moving through the country on passage at the moment visiting various lakes and gravel pits.
