Eastern Olivaceous in Cork. Citrine Wagtail on Scilly.
Wrynecks on Scilly and Cornwall. Bits and bobs elsewhere in the southwest and southern Ireland.
I missed something mind. Check out this jet stream map- high altitude winds are also bringing Nearctic waders in- Stilt Sand on the Isle of Man and also Nearctic waders on Scilly, the southwest and Ireland.
Also not quite right as there are also eastern scarce migrants scattered on the east coast- but the best stuff looks like it is in the Cornwall/southern Ireland vagrant zone.
High level and low winds- blowing in oppsite directions- waders coming in from the west at high altitude and passerines being carried on the southern flank of a high- got to look out for this one in the future.
