Bar-tailed Godwit Limosa lapponica

A common winter visitor and passage migrant to the coast of Norfolk and the rest of the UK. Of the two Godwits this one is far more likely to be encountered on the beach than Black-tailed Godwit though they do appear on fresh water too, at least to roost. Inland they're very much scarcer though they appear regularly on migration at slightly inland sites such as Hickling.
