Yes this appears to be a range extension. The most southerly record on the NSW coast, to date, is Wollongong. See map below.
It is important that the record get into Birds Australia's data base

Positive identification by a relative of mine of a Black-tailed Native-hen at Bendalong beach yesterday afternoon.  Is this a little out of its usual area?  Not seen there before after 30 years of week-ending.  I know this is not ACT, but so many of you are conversant with the usual/unusual across Australia, I thought you might know.
