Calidris ferruginea

Based on the curved beak and the location at 'Bundala', I'm going to identify this one as a Curlew Sandpiper. There were quite a few of them around looking for food in the shallow water of the salt flats. 

 

Came across a large flock of them in Mannar. They were feeding away in the grass fields in a dried up water tank. Although there were so many, couldn't get a good image.

Doubtful identification
