Black Tailed Godwit at Marshside, Lancs UK.
I see these in Hokkaido only occasionally, Bar Tailed Godwits are much commoner. This was one of many at Marshside which was a former haunt of mine back in the early 80's, it had changed a lot since then: the Godwits were sharing the pools with Avocets and Little Egrets, 2 species that were wildly exotic in Lancashire in the early 80's.
Thanks for clicking this link.
Let's hope you will see some again this year. I hope you are doing fine!ReplyDelete
