Poorly Barwit

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.


  1. How sad. If she went to a vet would she be given a big bill? Oh dear.

  2. Oh dear! I hope she was able to fly, I don't like to think about the alternative...

    You got some lovely photos of her John!

  3. Oh dear bazza, they get worse!

  4. Hi ShySongbird,
    I don`t hold out much hope, but my fingers have been crossed!
    I was quite pleased with the photo`s. :)
