The Black-tailed godwit breeds in wet grasslands, and winters on coastal estuaries and marshes, and at inland shallow waters. A sociable bird, it forms large flocks when feeding, probing the mud with its bill for invertebrate-prey.This Black Tailed Godwit image was taken in Belvedere, Kent where it was feeding along the shoreline of the River Thames. Food can be seen in its bill!
