Many thanks Phil. Will look at pics more later when I have more time, but first impression is of a fairly standard juv GWE. Size difficult to judge from pics available, but no alarm bells ringing for me currently on this one.

Hint of dark tip to upper mandible coming through - a regular feature on GWE, but no idea if Intermediate ever shows this. V happy to learn from someone who knows.

Curiously, across in Cape May, November was THE month to look for vagrants from south and west, but then the latitude there is on a line with Madrid.
Still, no sign of one yet in Western Europe? I'll be out looking tomorrow but it's always a long shot in Hampshire!

cheers, alan

Possibly the most out of place on the list, with at least two very gettable, relatively recent records, and now another at Easington today!

White-winged Lark needs removal per the latest BOURC report. The only extant record is October.

All the best

Macqueen's Bustard

If you take the American Redstart off as well, it does look a bit thinner..

Easterlies predicted from Friday night through to Wednesday. Coming out of Denmark and Low Countries. Initially, light but with rain by Monday and strong winds and rain Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Might produce something unexpected.

Long-tailed Shrike in Switzerland today. Looks well tasty and gives me hope as I wander the North Wales coast this month.
