Wood/Green/Marsh Sandpiper (Neusidler Lake, Hungary)

Hi,

this weekend, a pair of sandpipers got very close in the marshes of the Neusidler Lake on the Hungarian/Austrian border. Even though the photo is very clear, I cannot decide for certain about the exact species. Could you please help?

Looks like Green Sandpiper to me, but the list of "currently seen" in the information centre lists only Wood and Marsh (and Greenshank).

Thanks!
