With a Little Help from my Friends

Belly full of pig, sky full of clouds and an acute lack of birds another opportunity to work on the up and coming trip. So, instead of the usual endless ramblings I'll post a few more Waders for the 'birders' among you to ponder. None of these pics are certain as to identification, having already changed my mind on each a number of times. Not easy in the field, let alone from photographs, (unless they call/sing which none of these did) you may have a few spare minutes to confirm these findings. I'll await any help at the address below.
