Wood or Marsh Sandpiper, Netherlands June 2020

Yesterday I saw a Wood or Marsh Sandpiper (I think), 5 miles from the Dutch coast (Noord-Holland, Schagen) on mud flats near a tiny lake.

The bird was foraging near a Lapwing, always staying very close to the cover of a small green border (low bushes, grass and weeds).

Could someone help me ID this bird? Apologies for the bad images (taken in strong back light and over a huge distance).

(The first 3 images are of the candidate bird. The last 2 probably as well, but I'm not 100% if it's the same bird, as I later found the images in another sequence I took a minute earlier.)

Bye, Frank

I’d go with Marsh Sandpiper, the particularly fine bill I believe, supports the species.

Cheers

Not the best photos, not disrespect but looks like a Marsh Sand to me.

Also the lack of clear supercilium points to Marsh Sandpiper.
