ID comment

I thought that Limosa limosa subsp. islandica was the Icelandic BTG. Would a revised ID of just Limosa limosa be appropriate ?

Could be...

...but almost all the Blackwits wintering in this neck of the woods are islandica (based on colour-ring reading over the past 15 years). It's maybe unfair to call islandica when they can't be subspecifically ID'd from the image though.
