Black Tailed Godwit (Limosa Limosa)

I pictured this Black Tailed Godwit close to the footpath at
Titchwell RSPB when we visted on 21 March after the trip to
Snettisham.

A great day seeing these two prime reserves and there offerings.

Where were the Brent? Well at first I did not see them but at the
eastern side of the reserve I counted eleven, not many compared
to the numbers we saw elsewhere in Norfolk at Cley, Holme Dunes,
Brancaster but more of that later.

The Godwit is a fun looking chap, love it's long beak, looks like a straw the way it is using it along the water. Good share~

Great shots Mike.

Great shots Mike, if the Brent were not there when you arrived then I'm sure they turned up later. Super new header, a real fun shot.

Beautiful pictures of the Godwit. Wait until you get a picture of the tongue sticking out.

Thanks for your comments everyone.
I am sure the length of the bill can be a disadvantage at times, good for scratching but can you maouvere it to get everywhere? No!

Brent were there Roy, great nos. around, I am sure I have been to Norfolk in March before but I have never seen nos. like this of this bird before.
