Sharpa fresh water scrape

These 2 photos digiscoped approx one hour apart this morning but only one Sandpiper was present each time. The first photo we thought was a Common Sandpiper.

When we returned later & Sue Bruce arrived she understandably questioned the ID of the Sandpiper then seen in the same area as shown in the second photo.Is it a Green? [ Yes - Rob both of them are Green Sandpipers so probably same bird. Both dark backed with small whitish spots, well speckled neck and head, primaries about the same length as tail. ML]
