Flight of the Bar-tailed Godwit
Spit-bite Aquatint Etching on Zerkall paper
Edition of 60
 
 The Bar-tailed godwit winters in the UK in their thousands. It is a large, tall wader that breeds in Arctic Scandinavia and Siberia, and migrates here in the thousands, either for the whole winter or en route to wintering grounds further south. Large numbers can be spotted in estuaries such as the Thames, Dee, Humber and Wash.
In New Zealand the Bar-tailed Godwit, Limosa Lapponica (Kuaka in Maori) perform the longest nonstop flights of any non-seabird, and, unlike a seabird, there is no chance of an inflight snack. These birds make the 1200km/7500miles nonstop flight from New Zealand to Alaska each year to reach their breeding grounds. Flying continuously (not even gliding) over the ocean at an average speed of 80km/h, the journey takes six to eight days. For Maori they were birds of mystery, (‘Kua kite te kohanga kuaka? - Who has seen the nest of the kuaka?’) and were believed to accompany spirits of the departed.
