I am indebted to Brian Yuen for sending me scans of all four stamps. This confirms the identity of the species already given for the 10, 30 and 40 stamps.

I think I can safely identify the waders on the 50 from the bottom to the top as:
    Dunlin (Calidris alpina)
    Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres)
    Common Ringed Plover (Charadrius hiaticula)
    Sanderling (Calidris alba)
    Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica)
    Black-bellied Plover (Pluvialis squatarola)

If anyone has any further news or views about this set, please let me know.
