Autumn - are we there yet?

I think this signals the beginning of the autumn, here's just one of the many Pied Flycatchers that are hanging around southern headlands at the moment.

female type Pied Flycatcher - Hurley's lane, Knockadoon Head, Cork
Feeding in the small sycamores and along the garden walls at Hurley's Lane on Knockadoon Head yesterday evening. This is one of around 8 birds on the headead itself, I had at least 2 at Hurley's Lane and another one by the caravan park. Mid/late August is perhaps a bit early for these but there seems to have been a big movement of them over the last week across both Britain and Ireland.
