This post is a little late, but, to add to other reports, Marj and I drove
to South West Rocks from Melbourne to twitch the Lesser Yellowlegs last
Thursday. Ken Shingleton, the discoverer of the bird, took us out to look
for it on Friday morning 2nd November , but it had disappeared from the
original location on the swamp on Boyter's Lane, following heavy rain the
previous night. After lunch, Ken took us out to search possible alternative
locations and relocated it at Rainbow Reach, where we had great views and
photos from the roadside. The bird was clearly edgy and nervous of being
watched, so we avoided getting out of the car as much as possible. It was
also being harassed by a Greenshank.  Ken phoned on Sunday to say that 9
people had twitched the bird on Saturday and that it has now been found in 4
separate locations. Anyone wanting to try for it should contact Ken on the
number given in previous posts.
