The Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica) is a large wader in the family Scolopacidae, which breeds on Arctic coasts and tundra mainly in the Old World, and winters on coasts in temperate and tropical regions of the Old World. Its migration is the longest known non-stop flight of any bird and also the longest journey without pausing to feed by any animal.

Interesting facts to accompany this fine shot of the pair, Gordon: fine detail and I like the rippled shadows.

Excellent image!! With great information!! It is an excellent example of the variation in size and colour within the same specie, i would suspect the foreground bird is a juvenile bird!! great work!!
