All these pictures were taken today (13 September) in Ho Man Tin (HK).

Are they Pale-legged/Sakhalin? (The last picture shows a separate bird, the rest show the same one.)

Thanks!

I would agree with xuxy. Upperparts on both birds are the wrong shade for PLLW/Sakhalin and I would expect to see two narrow wingbars - both these birds show a broader one. Leg colour also looks wrong, appearing yellowish brown rather than pale pink. Both birds also seem to have a dark smudge on the lower mandible. As for which member of the complex they might be I don't know.
