Ruddy turnstone and Curlew

The little thing is a turnstone I think. The big thing...a Curlew? Or a Whimbrel? I'm going for Curlew - any advance on that?

 

Thanks to Buckeye for confirming - the large bird is a Curlew, the little one a Ruddy turnstone.

 

I cropped some of these, so will admit it (for the ones less than 3000pixels on their longest side) down here in the bit noone reads ;) Longest side on the original of this is 2480 pixels
