Bar tailed Godwits are a long-billed, long-legged wading bird who visit UK shores for the winter. Most usually seen in its grey-brown winter plumage, birds in spring may show their full rich chestnut breeding plumage. In flight they show a white patch stretching from the rump up the back, narrowing to a point. They breed in the Arctic of Scandinavia and Siberia and hundreds of thousands of them pass through the UK, on their way further south, or stop off here for the winter.
