Godwits looking up

Two years ago I was sharing the tale of a tail, and I thought I would revisit today with some improved photographic squares as part of Flashback Friday and SquareUp.

These Godwits may have looked up to keep an eye on us, however things are certainly not looking up for this wonderful wader birds. Thanks to climate change and human actions their habitats are fast disappearing in Portugal and elsewhere in the world. Consequently so are the birds. There are some brilliant projects such as Project Godwit, trying to ensure they don’t disappear, but the prospects are not looking great for them. No wonder the birds themselves are also trying to improve their odds – just check out the post below on this day two years ago.

A tale of a tail

and the cunning plan of the Black-tailed Godwits in Portugal

It had been a good life walking, cooking, photographing, volunteering, blogging, and best of all spending time with MrB, family, & friends. Sadly it no longer is. Suddenly and unexpectedly I have become a widow.

    1. Thank you – hope you don’t mind but I am going to move your link to the main blog so that everyone sees it. This is my Portuguese blog and so not the official challenge post. More of an excuse for me to second extra squares!

  1. They are beautiful birds, Becky. I don’t know if these 4uiet times we’re having at the moment are helping them at all. Hope you have a more peaceful day planned today 🙂 🙂

        1. I think you’re intended to stay pretty close to home, but we can get to the hills around here on foot without crossing any major roads 🙂 🙂
