The Curlew Sandpiper I'm assuming is the same one which I've seen around five times over the last month which is losing its peach coloured neck and growing into "faded" plumage. I haven't checked the book but one of the geese is smaller than the other with fresher looking plumage so I've assumed adult and this years youngster.

Over the last few days Purple Sandpiper numbers have increased 300%, there are now four which are usually found with Turnstones and Redshanks on the beach at Inchcape Park or on the breakwater nearby. Other photos from Lunan Bay and Montreathmont Forest.
