Adult North Norfolk
Now is the time and North Norfolk, one of the best places to see continental Black-tailed Godwits. Last July I had excellent tutorial seeing an unringed adult and Nene washes ringed adult, both in North Norfolk. From this summer, Jonathan Farooqi writes:
Your recent article on limosa Black-tailed Godwits came in very useful in identifying a Black-tailed Godwit I found at Titchwell on the 9th of June. The fact that it was ringed helped as well! We discovered that it was ringed as a chick on 05/05/1999 at the Nene Washes, Cambridgeshire. It returned to its natal site to nest during 2002, 2003 and 2004. It was also seen on 06/06/2010 at Titchwell. I’ve attached a photo of it that I took which you might like to see.
Have a nice summer,
