Peeps Barbados

Hello all,
the first image shows two birds - are they the same or different species?
The second shows a snipe in front, and a very poor image of another bird behind. Is it possible to say anything about this one?

thanks
Niels

Least Sandpipers, all 3 - tiny, with yellowish legs.

Presumably Wilson's Snipe for the snipe.

Thanks,
that is what I suspected. But I have had very little interaction with shorebirds the last 15 years, and now trying to relearn them

Thanks Laurie,
I have actually lived in the West Indies since 2002 so am aware of the late Mr Bond. I assume if you were to purchase the copy of the field guide that Fleming had at auction, it would cost you astronomical sums

She would feature in the Readers Wives supplement

For Fleming fans this is worth a watch...
