Since first being found at Spurn, the Pied Crow has now covered >1920 miles (likely much more if it spend a lot of time coasting). It's nearest breeding range is ~1900 miles from the UK. Difficult to see why it couldn't have just wandered directly from its native range too...

I imagine most American Warblers, Sparrows, that have occurred in the Uk & other parts of Europe have hopped off of ships....

Hmm. Some of the sparrows clearly have (and the Blackpoll at Seaforth) but vast majority clearly correlate with weather systems.

More likely arrived on a boat. Which is pretty much why I don't bother with twitching.

I didn't twitch it. But thanks for that entirely unsupported assertion & personal anecdote apropos of nothing.

A Little Egret fledged from Verulamium Park, St Albans has reached the Azores. A Short-eared Owl has moved from Scotland to Sweden and then back to Ireland. Birds can move long distances with ease.
