Bar-tailed Godwit - LappspoveLimosa limosa
Myrspov  - Lille Kobbersneppe - Punakuiri - Barge rousse

Bar-tailed Godwit are infrequent during the spring migration, but are more regular in the autumn. In common with other locations (such as Le Clipon in France), the first birds turn up towards the end of July and the peak occurs from end August to mid September.

The occurrence pattern of this species at Utsira is very similar both in timing and numbers.

The blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of visits when Bar-tailed Godwit have been recorded and the green one (numbers on right hand axis) shows the maximum numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
