In this expedition from 6 to 15 March 2024 I visited the most important stopover areas for continental Black-tailed Godwits (from here: godwits) during spring migration in western France. The aim was to resight individual colour marked birds, describe the habitats used by godwits and to gain information on threats and opportunities by field observations and meetings with local experts. In this report I present a daily overview of my findings with photos, locations visited, numbers present and the first conclusions and recommendations.
