Comment:   Pattern of raised underwing is compatible with Hudsonian Godwit - however I have no experience of this species, and would appreciate some additional opinions. Should it be a Hudsonian Godwit it would not appear on our drop-down list and therefore could not be officially ratified at present. But it would be a notable sighting.
