What Shorebird is this? SEQ

Hey,

Just needing to know what shorebird these are. They were seen at Thorneside, QLD. There seemed quiet small and were in a somewhat large group. 

I think they are a “Great Knot” although I’m not sure if that lines up with their migratory arrival etc, just wanting other opinions.

thanks,

(sorry about the pictures, it was the best I could do)

Agree with Great Knot.

Most migrate for the Winter, though some do stay, mainly in northern parts as I understand it.

The Australian Bird ID fb group agrees!
