CommentI spent several days at Goolwa chasing the Bar-tailed Godwits. At one stage there was a flock of fifty three including three in breeding plumage. I was surprised to see Black-tailed Godwits among them. This was the first time I had seen them here. Whilst heavily cropped the image is submitted as it clearly shows the bill and plumage differences between the two.
