It's autumn, not winter. So its just a late date, not a winter record.

Hi Peter,

A quick look at HANZAB suggests that this is a very unusual sighting.  They
say that birds rarely are reported in winter south of 26°S, with a reporting
rate of 0.3%.  They also say "rarely winter in NSW or Vic."

Has anyone else any thoughts?
