Still no response here. I did comment last night suggesting that people might be reluctant to respond to this as currently presented - and suggesting ways of addressing that. But my comment was disallowed 🤷🏻 Somebody else might try, in order to help the OP?
I start with the bird you marked with ? It might well be a Red Knot. By bulky build, size in relation to the redshanks and grey hue of the upperparts (although pale face seems slightly odd, but easily explained by picture quality and light conditions. No offense you know)
Hello again,

sorry my first comment was confusing. I was referring to the left ? bird.
The two right birds that are marked with ? look slightly better for Ruffs than for Redshanks by size and the just guessable headpattern (pale blaze at the bill base)

The smaller waders left of the Whimbrel (looks slightly better for a Curlew for me by size and Whimbrel are typically darker birds) and behind are Dunlins imo.
