Sandpiper Cyprus (1 Viewer)

Uncomfortably Numb.
The first two are Wood Sandpipers, note the well marker super & spotting on the brown upper parts.
The third is a Green Sandpiper, note how much darker the upper parts are compared to the Wood Sand & the lack of distinct spotting.

there are 2 different ones here. The one with the eye stripe going to eye and no further is green sandpiper. The other(s) [it's the same photo] are wood sandpiper. See greater white spotting on wood sandpiper mantle colour and supercilium as already remarked
