Re: Dive Bomber

Great shots Andy, I'm envious. Was this taken in Holland? The Godwits we usually see in the UK are the "Icelandica" sub species which breed in Iceland and winter here. Your bird looks like the slightly paler coloured longer billed " Limosa Limosa" which breed in parts of Northern Europe and winter in Southern Europe and North Africa. Of course I may be talking through my hat. Great shots anyway, thanks for sharing.

Regards
