All photo`s digiscoped using Canon Powershot A640 and Kowa TSN-883 x30
This female Bar-tailed Godwit was present at one of the pits at the Maxey site the other day, an area of the site frequented by dog walkers. She was seen to fly in, but when I caught up with her a couple of hours later she was showing signs of having a damaged wing (you can draw you own conclusions as to how her wing was damaged). This was not hindering the bird as far as feeding was concerned, but I am sure that she would not be able to fly.
The bird was not present the day after these photo`s were taken.
