Inlet bird ID please

Hi all 

Can anyone please ID this wader bird for me, guessing its a juvenile.

It was hanging around a flock of red necked Avocets on Leschenault inlet , south west , West Australia

Thanks in advance

cheers Laza

It's a Common Greenshank, & it's not a juvenile, it has a lot of tatty looking worn feathers, at this of of year the juvenile Greenshanks will have fresh plumage.
