Default Photo of birds in Norway

Hi there

I was doing a clean-up of some photos when I came across these photos that I've taken in the south-west of Norway last August

I'm thinking common sandpiper but they seem a bit slimline for that. Can someone enlighten me please?

apologies for the poor quality. Was taken with an old digital camera with a lousy zoom.

These are all Dunlin - you can see the summer breeding plumage black belly feathers remaining in places in a few of them.
