Firth of Forth Godwits (1 Viewer)

My home patch is on the south Fife coast. I usually get a few Bar-tailed Godwits every winter, but was surprised to find one a couple of days ago. This afternoon, I found a few more Godwits, but would just like to check one or two of them for Black-tailed.
The two birds with colour have given me some cause for thinking Black-tailed, but I'm not totally convinced.

Jizz is Barwit too, blackwit just looks more elegant compared to its rather dumpy cousin.
