An after-work trip up to Boulmer on Monday was eventually a success. With no sign at first, 90 mins and a lot of walking got me decent, but distant views of the Long-billed Dowitcher.

A return today with more time and better weather gave improved results. It took some finding again, roosting on distant rocks at Seaton Point. The tide gradually pushed the Dowitcher closer and as the tide peaked the bird was just offshore with Dunlin, before flying to the north of the beach.

A stroll along the beach to the north of Boulmer gave distant views of the Dowitcher with the bonus of a Black Redstart in the same scope view.
