    Google has suddenly started to list a site of mine that has had a 301 redirect to a new domain for over a month

    Anyone experiencing google weirdness?

    the 301 redirected site is still indexed, but since making a change of address in google webmaster tools and applying the 301, the URL vanished from the SERPS. However in the last few days its appeared back again

    not only that, the site it was redirected to has had 300 pages de-indexed!

    I still see some bit.ly url rank for some specific keywords. So your case is not the only one.

    Google Webmaster Tools, if you add it you can remove it from the SERPs

    ok the 301'ed site has now vanished and the serps are back to what they where. Maybe some google updates caused some issues
