More water birds

A couple more waterbirds here that I've photographed for the first time. Again, low quality photos as they were far away.

One photo here with 2 species in it.

I believe the middle bird is a Godwit, but which type?

Im going with the others are being Black Winged Stilts, left one being adult and the others are juveniles?

Definetly an adult Black-winged Stilt with 2 imm's. I'm not an expert on Godwits, I've only seen Bar-tailed, which I think are the most common out of the 3 Godwits. Black-tails have a straight beak, which this picture looks like it might have, but hard to tell from the photo.

Yes this one had a straight beak i believe.
I will try to get another photo up later today
