Bar-tailed Godwit


Rare bird Alert –  16 October 2017

One Bar-tailed Godwit – named E7, was recorded as flying the longest migration of any non-terrestrial bird from New Zealand  to the Yellow sea (between China and Korea)!  This was recorded as the longest nonstop migration of any bird.  A distance of over 11 000 km in 7 days.  Many studies were/are being done on Godwits and this would be worth pursuing for some amazing facts.
