The shorebird flocks were very large with more than 100 individuals. They were mainly composed of pectoral sandpipers with some yellowlegs. Both have yellow legs, but yellowlegs' extend from the tail. The yellowleg has a white rump, where as the pectoral sandpiper's split. It is worth showing both the flock and pinpointing some individuals. Ibises and lapwings flying to the right and below them the shorebirds. The lesser yellowleg in the blue circle is enlarged in the photo below

Here white-faced Ibises and Soythern Lapwings moving to the left and after them a pectoral sandpiper and a yellowleg. Look at the decurved bill of the sandpiper and the yellowleg's of the last photo. It seems to be recurved like in greater yellowlegs, but I do not see it too long. This is the big dilemma with the greater and the lesser yellowlegs, two species difficult to tell apart.
