You need a different set of eyes to look for Nordmann's Greenshank in breeding plumage. This is a rare photo that puts both closely resembled Greenshank species side by side for comparison. The Nordmann's (now can be conveniently called Spotted) Greenshank on the right shows very distinct bold black dots and broad white fringed tertials.
