i think Black-tailed Godwit
It should be a bar tailed, bar tailed in non breeding plumage are pale with pink bill with black tip, but the black tailed godwit, the bird at the background, is in breeding plumage, has a yellow beak with a black tip.
Pls compare the two species.
The bill is straight (upturned in Bar-tailed)
The upperparts-feathers that are moulted into winter plumage are plain (with darker streaks in Bar-tailed)
The remaining summer plumage feathers on the breast show a barred appearance (uniform reddish in Bar-tailed)
The supercilium is short (long in Bar-tailed)
The white in the wing is a trace of the obvious white wingbar of Black-tailed (absent in Bar-tailed)
The tibiae is rather long (shorter in Bar-tailed)
