Is this a Little Stint?

Seen at Kliphoek Saltpans, Berg River, January 2016. Overall gizz of this bird looked ‘odd’ for a Little Stint. Longer, slightly decurved bill, long wing projection. We started to think maybe Western Sandpiper… That would be a first for southern Africa!
Assessment from experts both locally and abroad, after some doubt, finally decided an abnormal Little Stint.
