Future Megas

Dave Dunford and I are interested in your opinions. The other day Dave cunningly started adding "future megas" to our database so that we're not caught on the hop when the next Nearctic stunner arrives at Cape Clear. (If you read into this that we weren't particularly well organised with the last couple, then you'd be right.)

So we did a quick and dirty list and added the following as our bets for the next "First for Britain and Irelands":

Cerulean Warbler
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Least Flycatcher
Tricoloured Heron
American Woodcock
Acadian Flycatcher
White-eyed Vireo
Louisiana Waterthrush
Gray's Grasshopper Warbler
Eastern-crowned Warbler
Cinereous Bunting
Swinhoe's Snipe

So what do you think? What have we missed? I imagine there are a few other likely contenders out there. Please leave comments with your suggestions...

The mot likely are Siberian and Black-throated Accentors and American Cave Swallow; perhaps Three-toed Woodpecker
