I would like to know your opinion about the smallest one.
Thank you.

Compared to the Marsh Sandpiper it does look so small, no? I wonder if it could be a Little Stint?

I could easily be persuaded of Little Stint too. Surprisingly difficult to evaluate size-even with other species on hand to make comparison with. I even think I can see a tiny bump where the hind toe should be ;)

Only circumstancial but Little Stint is much more likely in the company the bird is in. However - it looks a bit bright and sparkly, like a Sanderling ;)
