Please help me ID these Waders. I saw them in the same place and day as the Wader ID 1. Except for Whimbrels, I guess Dunlin, Curlew SP, LS/Sanderling, or Temminck's Stint. Due to LQ of pics, I attached a series of them to make the ID easier.

Hello Abraham,
there is a Common Ringed Plover hiding in the first picture, its the 6. bird from left. Please note:
white ring around neck, unique to Little, Kentish and Common RP in Europe. And the right jizz with large head, not so long hindparts and size in relation to the other birds makes a CRP the best fit imo.

I struggle to find a convincing candidate for a Temmincks Stint or a Sanderling among them, so I hope for others to find one and explain it, so I can learn.

Edit: yes, there are hard birds, at least for me, that might be TS or Sanderligs, but they are unidable at least for me.

I think I agree with this. There's one bird especially which might be a Temminck's: very elongate, shortish bill, largely grey but I'm not wholly convinced as the bill looks a bit long.

I struggle to identify the slightly larger needle-billed wader just right of centre in pic 5. it looks something like marsh sand (without certainty).
