Sandpiper Query

Managed to photograph this sandpiper yesterday, which I thought was just a green.
Having posted a photo on my local forum, a discussion has started as to whether or not It is a Solitary Sandpiper (Tringa solitaria).
I'd appreciate It If someone to confirm this either way if possible.

Regards.

Tailpattern etc differ from Solitary if that was on someones mind.
