It looked like one parent bird and one sibling to me. Didn't get a good view of feeding, but it regularly had its wings out in a "feed me" pose.

I put some photos on my instagram here:

Still present yesterday afternoon, moving between the roof of 23 Mimosa Cl and the construction fencing along the boundary of Mackillop College (and into the construction site). It sounded like a young bird and was in the company of 2 normal Willie Wagtails (presumably its parents).

Later on, a Nankeen Night-heron was observed at Lake Tuggeranong.
