The female was ringed as a chick in East Anglia in May 1999 and therefore must be limosa. Both the male and female have started to replace their tertials. There was a certain amount of display and frolicking going on between them. Note how different the pattern on the scapulars of the male differs from the male islandica at Cley (P00207), as well as other obvious structural differences, particularly the lankyness of the female.
