Apart from the slightly upturned bill ( but we’ve talked about that before) the pattern on the back is much too striking and varied for a Black-tailed Godwit, which would have a ‘plainer’ look. This is more Curlew- like and I often find that a helpful ID feature. But then, the real Godwit expert has not spoken yet…B)

It seems like an age since I last posted here. Family obligations managed to eat up the last part of August and the first 10 days of September. What with a wedding in Germany and then recovering

Anyway, enough of that, time to get back on track with a very stuttering BY.   This next one is definitely a record for me. Not a record I particularly wanted but a record nonetheless.

I was surprised to see this fellow on one of the drainage channels running between the road and fields. I guess the biting wind coming in from the east has pushed them a bit further inland than normal

Oh poo. It looks as though I'll have to keep going further afield to see them
