Ringed green sandpiper

I had reasonably good views of the ringed green sand on the Flood at Aldcliffe this afternoon. I think the colours are; left leg red over green and right leg green over green. I am unfamiliar with bird ringing but the top colours were above the "joint" in its leg (apologies for my ignorance there). All colours can be described as pale rather than dark.

Apologies if the ID of this bird is already known. I also apologise if the colours I have reported are slightly different to those previously reported. However, I had good views and am fairly confident of these.

If the bird's ID is gained from this description, could the details be posted on the forum?

Hi Guy. I got good views last week of a ringed green sand here and thought that the left leg was a large orange ring with black digits, with the right leg having a small green ring above the tarsus & a metal one below the tarsus. The green on the right denotes it was ringed at Woolston Eyes but without the digits, we won't be able to ID the individual bird!
Might yours be a different bird?

Cheers Jon. It will be the same bird. The pale red ring I saw will actually be orange. After I posted the first post, I realised that there should have been a silver ring also.
