Mystery bird: June 2019

Thank you for all your entries. This time, we selected a low angle shot from a wader or shorebird (or not?). At least it looks like a bird somehow connected to water. But how big is it? And how may it`s bill look like? Feel free to determine the species. Hints towards it`s age or plumage are welcome.
