About The Black-tailed Godwit

The black-tailed godwit is the ambassador of Dutch polder landscapes. Its 'kru-weitoo-weitoo' call often makes it an easy bird to recognize. Around half of the world population of black-tailed godwits nest in the Netherlands, making this country the most important black-tailed godiwit land. The first godwits return at the end of February to nest. In July, most of the godwits have departed for West Africa, where they remain during the winter.
