Ye never know. Every year about this time, reports of "early arriving" birds
intermingle with "late departing" ones. I suspect folk just don't like
winter so they're trying to shorten it by flushing out the slow movers and
welcoming the newcomers back as quickly as possible.

Yes, we had one here in Dunlop on 4 and 13 July and on 1 August - obviously
one of the lazy ones that doesn't fly north.
