Black-tailed Godwit

A cracking flock of 28 Black-tailed Godwit dropped into our corner of the Gann Lagoon early afternoon.  Presumably mostly 2CY birds, one was a red delight, as were their subtle contact calls. Stunning.  Less stunning were the couple with their 2 dogs off the lead ambling around the top of the lagoon, narrowly avoiding flushing the godwits and the nearby roosting Oystercatcher.
