This loan limosa, alongside 100 islandica but feeding separately from them, apart from a single islandica companion, demonstrates worn brown tertials, unlike all other godwits present. The bill length and intensity of orange would indicate a male. It would be a non-breeder on account of its very pink bill and the fact that it is already well advanced in its primary moult, as were many of the islandicas.
