Hi all,
Shorebirds are tricky! Mostly looking for confirmation on these, but really need help with the Sand-Plovers :)

2. Curlew Sandpiper and Greater?
3. Same Sand-Plover as second image
4. Terek Sandpiper
5. Black-tailed Godwits, Common Redshank, Pacific Golden-Plover, Sand-Plover sp. (and Brahminy Kite :))
6. Curlew Sandpiper
7. Asian Dowitcher, Black-tailed Godwit, Sand-Plover sp.

1. Both Tibetan (Lesser) Sand Plover
2-3. Hmm. Tricky. The sand plover looks like Tibetan on the first image and Greater on the second. I think it's Greater, but probably best treated as sand plover sp. Agree with Curlew Sandpiper for the others.
4. Yes, Terek.
5. Agree with your suggestions, plus a couple of birds look like Knot (probably Red) and (I think) Curlew Sandpiper.
6. Agree with Curlew Sandpiper
7. Agreed. The sand plover looks like Greater.
