2:10 The Godwits - Dr Phil Battley - Friday is March 1st, and as Autumn comes, the godwits go.
They'll be starting their migration from next week onwards, a seasonal exodus that sees them make their way home to Alaska to breed. They'll fly non stop, via China, clocking up tens of thousands of miles on the wing. But why do some godwits leave before others do? And how does each bird know when its time for it to go? Zoology Lecturer Dr Phil Battley has spent years studying godwits and their patterns.
