I think this bird is a first winter Lesser Knot Calidris canutus.

I'm going for Wandering Tattler, on the basis of eyestripe not extending behind the eye, and wing tips extending beyond tail.

Grey-tailed Tattler.
Because; wing length is good. Colour is pale brown/grey and not dark. Habitat is most likely for this species.Supercillium is distinct and and goes to back of eye.
