Strange bill on brown sandpiper

I'm not sure what this is. Most likely an expected species with a bill deformity, unless it's a young, very lost Spoon-billed Sandpiper

On second look there were actually two, different plumages. Expected for this at this time of year would probably be something like Baird's I guess, which I have subsequently seen. This new photo showing somewhat rufous brown.
