I did some reading over breakfast. Its been west winds, so maybe no matter with a northerly or a southerly component, it just keeps heading to Africa where it will winter. Assuming this is a bird from Canada. With vagrants, always a good idea to get all the field marks and vocalizations if possible. And not assume, but I do.
I am talking in general on that. Say flycatchers for example.
That Wheatear could be anywhere at the moment. Another good reason to bird always. Period.
