Here is some information about the Godwit:
The godwits are a group of large, long-billed, long-legged and strongly migratory wader birds. Their long bills allow them to probe deeply in the sand for aquatic worms and molluscs. They frequent tidal shorelines, breeding in northern climates in summer and migrating south in winter. In their winter range, they flock together where food is plentiful.
They can be distinguished from the curlews by their straight or slightly upturned bills, and from the dowitchers by their longer legs.
