Closer inspection revealed a Godwit standing all alone in the middle of the tussocky grass.
I did wander behind one of the tussocks, but it was obviously a Bar-tailed Godwit. I did manage to get a bit closer with the light a bit more behind me.
There still isn't much sign of any summer plumage but as it breeds in the tundra regions of northern Europe and Russia, east to Siberia, there is still a while before they will be breeding. It flew from the field to the Restharrow Scrape.
On the Restharrow Scrape I was surprised to see a Mandarin Duck some distance away. Even into the evening sun the silhouette is very distinctive.
