Black Tailed Godwit (limosa limosa)
The Black-tailed Godwit (Limosa limosa) is a large, long-legged, long-billed shorebird first described by Carolus Linnaeus in 1758. It is a member of the Limosa genus, the godwits. There are three subspecies, all with orange head, neck and chest in breeding plumage and dull grey-brown winter coloration, and distinctive black and white wingbar at all times.
This one is a captive bird shot at the Pensthorpe reserve a few months ago.
My most grateful thanks to all who gave time to vote/comment on the Scarlet Ibis.
