Following on from the post on the weather forecast, I did a little research into last year's displacement of Little Auks, and found it was also in the beginning of November.
A report on the Birdguides site (below) describes a similar event in the second week of November 2001. The weather conditions were clearly similar to those of this current week.
Watch this space (or, more likely, other spaces) for another possible arrival. Dylan, of course, has already seen his.....three on Tuesday off Ramsgate.
A marvellous description of a similar displacement (or wreck) in November 2001 is shown on Birdguides, again illustrating the meteorological similarity.
