See if this works.
Swamp Harriers are regular at Maddens Plains. Up until 18 months ago a pair was regularly seen there, but one was hit by a car and since then only single birds have been seen there (one of my work colleagues drives the F6 most days).

Hi Birders,
Terrill Nordstrom reported on a Swamp Harrier at Maddens Plains south of Sydney. While it is many years since I have lived in Sydney and regularly travelled south along the coast, I do remember seeing Swamp Harriers over that low costal heath at Maddens Plains. I would suspect that the sighting is not unusual because Swamp Harriers are sometimes seen on the coastal heaths here on the Central Coast. However I may be wrong and maybe the Illawarra birderes have better knowledge of this than I do.
