An antique print of a Bar-Tailed Godwit professionally framed in a style that works and compliments the age and Period of the print.
Features a truly beautiful tone of red with subtle blue feathers and legs.
The bar-tailed godwit is a long-billed, long-legged wading bird which visits UK shores for the winter. Most usually seen in its grey-brown winter plumage, birds in spring may show their full rich chestnut breeding plumage. In flight it shows a white patch stretching from the rump up the back, narrowing to a point. It breeds in the Arctic of Scandinavia and Siberia and hundreds of thousands of them pass through the UK, on their way further south, or stop off here for the winter.
The print is an authentic original from "A History of British Birds", published in London, 1870.
The print itself is in great condition but there may be minor blemishes to the paper commensurate with age - as to be expected with any paper material 150 years old.
With string on the back and foam padded corners this is ready to hang.
