Large wader on Stour Estuary
No interactions present.
Pretty sure its a Black-tailed Godwit, the lighter plumage and the just visible black tail would rule out the Bar-tailed Godwit.

I agree it is Black-tailed. You have to be careful looking for the tail, as the black visible here is just the wing tips...I don't think the tail is visibly black in this picture. Leg length is always a good feature...Black-tailed is longer-legged, with more leg visible above the knee (the tibia), whereas Bar-tailed always looks slightly stockier and shorter-legged.

Noted thanks, overall it looked just like the birds we get locally which are Black-tailed Godwits.
