Hi Denise,

Unfortunately these two Darwin birds were never confirmed. Hence, HANZAB Vol. 2 
(1993) lists no acceptable records for Australia.
Tun Pin's AGP in Sydney (BARC case No. 766) is the 3rd confirmed record for 
Australia The first was a worn and faded juvenile seen and photographed at 
Byron Bay, NSW on 8 November 1994 (BARC case No. 189) and a well photographed 
individual at the Dry Creek Saltfields, SA in November 2006 (BARC Case No. 529).
