As a Wires rescuer in the Blue Mountains I have several times picked up Aus. and Hoary-headed Grebes that have come to grief on wet roads. No injury, just need to be put in the nearest body of water. Last September a Great-crested Grebe was found on a doorstep in Leura. When released on Wentworth Falls lake it immediately made contact with another GCB. They were there for some months. Not sure if they are still there.
