Yes, think so, esp. given I believe I see the chestnut collar on several pics (e.g. 2,3)

not a 1000 per cent sure of some of these: first two have black-winged stilts and silver gulls. 3 is probably the same; 4 and 5 are greenshanks.

So far as I could tell from a quick web crawl, bill size is fairly variable in both although i agree it tends to be more massive in tawny. I think this is in the range of variation for steppe so give...

Entirely agree with all of this. The linked Macauley library photo is showing a black culmen for female collared which is diagnostic of that species. The OP photo shows a clear yellow bill instead.
