Rather odd that these photos are re-emerging still posted as Red Knot when they are of a Spotted Sandpiper! Why has no account been taken of the previous comments?

Steven, looks like you’ve posted the wrong photos. These are of Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularius), a quite different bird entirely, and usually solitary or in small groups, unlike the Knots which can occur in enormous winter flocks.

Yes Im in Ireland, and spotted that straight away. Very similar bird to the European Common Sandpiper, but your pics are a spotted sandpiper, told by its yellower legs and vermiculations on the wings. Lovely shops though.
