I was fortunate enough to see one of the Moroccan SBCs in Dec 1991. One character that struck me at the time was how noticeable the white feathering on the relatively long tibia looked. The bird had the habit of standing quite upright when alert, giving an impression of standing on "tip-toe", and seen front-on the tibial feathering was one of the most obvious features. I wonder if anybody who has seen the Minsmere curlew has gained this impression?
