Black-tailed godwit spring migration in full swing


Thids is a black-tailed godwit video from England.

Yesterday, 7 March 2014, again to the “Baillon’s crake reserve”.

Two great cormorants resting on the windmill’s sails.

Many gray leg geese. A Canada geese couple tries to drive them away from what it considers to be its territory. Gadwall ducks.

In the next canal, a tufted duck group. A male teal. A coot. Mallards.

In the southern lake, a great crested grebe.

In the northern lake, on the island, a lesser black-backed gull. Scores of northern lapwings.

And many black-tailed godwits. Over 200 now. While, when I was here a few days ago, they were only about 100.

Two shelducks and scores of shovelers swimming.
