Waders in the Pantanal, 6th Sept 2018

Some pictures of waders, first 2 from near the start of the Transpantaneira. The first bird was identified as Greater Yellowlegs but unfortunately all photos were head on. The second (photos 2-5) was overlooked at the time - I suspect it is a Lesser Yellowlegs.

The third bird (pictures in 2nd post) was seen on a sandbank near Porto Jofre and I assume is a Spotted Sandpiper. I am interested in others opinions.

I think your IDs are correct, although the first is a hard angle to be sure from.
