The Black-tailed Godwit is a long-legged, long-billed wader.
The nominal subspecies breeds across Eurasia from Western Europe to Central Asia;
other subspecies breed in Iceland/Faroes and in the Siberian Far East.
All fly south to winter (those from Iceland winter in the UK while UK summer breeders fly to Africa).
Bills like long drinking straws.
Male and female breeding plumage is a red head, neck and chest.
The third picture above is the grey-brown non-breeding plumage.
The similar Bar-tailed Godwit (Arctic breeder - not shown),
has no white wing bar, a more streaky back and, of course, a barred tail.
The third picture above is with an Avocet.
