Observation details

***very rare; small, short-legged godwit in drab plumage; pink-based bill slightly upturned; upper parts grayish brown with darker feather centers, browner and more contrasting than in similarly plumaged HUGO; white upper rump glimpsed while the bird preened, nailing ID and confirming subspecies as European lapponica; later flight views confirmed finely barred tail, pale underwings, white lower back, etc.; several first responders were able to see the bird before it flew out of sight to the east; a few distant photos.
