Black-tailed Godwit Limosa limosa

The Icelandic race of Black-tailed Godwit, islandica, is a common passage migrant and winter visitor to Norfolk. The nominate Continental race limosa is much scarcer but those few that breed in East Anglia belong to that form.

So far I haven't assigned the following photos to race but it's highly likely that most are Icelandic birds.
