Long-billed Dohhhitcher and Lesser Yellowshank

Saturday produced very brief visitations from both the elusive nearctic visitors -- Sunday produced a total lack of anything of note such are the long hours of birding on a difficult site -- to put things in context I have spent 30 hours at Alkborough over the last 4 days and in that time the Lesser Yellowlegs has appeared on the favoured pool for 8 minutes one day and the dowitcher has shown for about 15 minutes -- the site has so much reed and so many invisible and inaccessible areas that waders can easily disappear for days at a time its hit and miss with a lot more miss than hit
