If it helps none, I've seen one (actually more than one).

Not sure I can technically call it a 'blocker' though? Or can I ...

Wryneck, Cattle Egret or Cory's Shearwater plus Black Grouse and Capercaillie. I've tried for all of them. Blockers in the sense that they keep my list lower than it could be. I did get Hudwit recently so only Little Whimbrel and American Bittern as genuine blockers that I should have but haven't due to historical apathy. I'd go for both these days.

My worst blockers are

Spruce Grouse
Brewer's Blackbird
Orange-crowned Warbler (likely seen, difficult to ID)
Northern Goshawk
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher
Nelson's Sparrow

None of these are rare in my area but I haven't got them yet.
