  • Black-tailed Godwit confirmation please Alentejo Portugal

    Took this photo today. I think it is a Black-tailed Godwit. Any idea about the Duck in the background?

    Thanks,

    Bert

        The bill shape of the bird in the centre background is bang on for a pintail.
        With the godwits, if you get a view of them away from the water blackwits have more leg showing above the 'knee' than barwits sounds daft but once you get a feel for the proportions it's surprising how far away you can separate them without seeing the wings or tails.
