Knot? - Two Tree Island, UK

From today. A bit distant but not sure if the bird behind the Dunlin is a Knot. Grateful for confirmation/correction.

thanks

Paul

Thanks guys. Sorry to drone on about Knots but can you have a look at this other photo attached. I had given them a glance and thought they were Dunlin but now I think Knot.

cheers

Yes, they're all Knots. If you look at the 4th bird from the right, you'll see that there's a summer plumaged Knot behind it.

Always nice to get knots inland on passage and summer plumaged ones are a bonus.
