Hi All,
It was still there today, nine days after first being seen in the same area by Frank Hemmings.  We observed it for 15 mins from 9.00 am.  It fed on the fairly open ground in and adjacent to the wheel tracks south-east of and between the two red flags of the firing range.  It was not disturbed by us at about 25m; taking a scope would be worth the effort.
Ern Hoskin's book, The Birds of Sydney, does not mention this species.  Did he miss a previous County of Cumberland record, or is this the first?  Perhaps Alan Morris can advise on that one?
