Default Little Stint or Dunlin Maybe - Any ideas folk?

Hey there everyone,

Hope you're all well and getting excited for Autumn

My wife and I were over at Oare Marshes in Kent last weekend and among the flocks of Lapwings and Golden Plovers we found this little guy popping up all of the place.

We're thinking it may be a Little Stint but we're not sure - do you think maybe a Dunlin?

Any ideas from you guys would be a great help?

Thanks so much

Judging by the size compared to those Golden Plovers in the foreground, I'd say Dunlin. And there's just a hint of the black belly in the first photo.
