I've attached some pictures from a few days of recent shorebirding. I'm thinking Dunlin for the first two (9744, 9535), Common Redshank and Greenshank for the third (9806), Common Sandpiper for the fourth (9918), and Eurasian Oystercatchers + an unknown species for the last one. However, I'm not fully certain of any of these IDs (especially unsure of Dunlin vs Curlew Sandpiper in the field), so would love some help.

The last photo definitely has two Eurasian Oystercatchers, but I can not help with any of the others.😢

To me the bird in the first picture looks like a Sanderling, note the black legs witch can be a distinction from Least and Semipalmated, witch were the others I was thinking possible here. Although I am not of much experience with this particular region so wait for other opinions.

Also is it possible bird two is a Spotted Sandpiper

Not in Europe/Asia... it would be a Common.

 

My other thoughts are:

1) I think Curlew Sand... but I would like to see another shot of the bill.

2) Common Sand

3) I think they are Greenshanks

4) Look like Curlew Sands with a Caspian Plover,(i think... can't make it into any other plover on Georgia)

5) Eurasian Oystercatchers w/ (not sure but I think) Marsh Sands

 

Might be good to post on Birdforum.net as most there are from Europe/Asia and have more experience with those species.
