Forerunner of an Invasion?

Just a temporary update to bring the news of yesterday afternoon's surprise bird. We heard shrill calls both morning and afternoon, but it was only after lunch that the shrieks were tracked to their source. A second bird was in attendance, but we weren't able to obtain a decent view of this one. Apparently, these birds have been present for some time, but the news hasn't been disseminated to a wider public. It's probably not a case of suppression, but it was probably thought that the general birdwatcher wasn't interested in seeing these birds, or adding them to their Life, County or Year lists.
