Portugal-Holland-Iceland- Beddington Farmlands

This colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit was at Beddington on the weekend. Roger has tracked down the migration history of this bird which is here: http://dodge007.blogspot.com/2010/04/black-tailed-godwit-update.html
Turns out this bird spends the summer in Iceland, winters in Portugal and passes through Holland and the UK in between. Strangely the bird was in Holland a few days ago and decided to come to Beddington which seems to be the wrong direction to get to Iceland- maybe didn't want to fly into the volcanic dust??
