bar-tailed godwit I believe. Just saw a vote before me for black-tailed. How do you tell these apart? I thought bar-tailed looked more streaky whereas black-tailed looked more scalloped.

edit again: warmer tones to the chest and head = black-tailed ?

I'm for Barwit - slightly upturned bill, and strongly pale-fringed feathers on mantle & coverts
