There was mention of a few sightings and including a juvenile, so I thought perhaps more substantial than a single bird.

From what I have read I think it is only a single bird so talk about becoming established is a bit previous.  The situation is probably like the Paradise Shelduck at Lake Woolumboola in 2016: 1 bird does not an established population make.

This article suggests that the Nicobar Pigeon is becoming established in the Kimberley.  It is not in field guides or HANZAB as far as I can see.

The picture has been compressed when I printed to a pdf writer, so it looks a bit scrawny in this image.
