Bird identity - Black-Tailed Godwit?

By fcast
I know the photo is not up to much but am i right in identifying it as a Black-Tailed Godwit
according to the RSPB website it breeds mainly in East Anglia and also Shetland, so whats it doing in Washington wetlands?
excuse my ignorance if its something common i am no expert Smile

Definitely a Black Tailed Godwit Frank. Looks like it will be an early passage bird. Give 6-10 weeks or so and they may be around in larger numbers off and on!! I got it yesterday!! Nice Image!! I like it a lot!!
dont no but lovely shot. christineGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
