Yes - species such as Redpoll, Chaffinch and Yellowhammer have been added to the Australian list as vagrants from Lord Howe Island and Macquarie Island from the New Zealand populations. LHI is great example of how a population can be established from an introduced population, with both Blackbirds and Song Thrush self-introducing from the NZ populations.

Now a question for the twitchers and the non-twitchers. If a species is
introduced to a place where it becomes established, then an individual turns
up as a vagrant to Australia, is it 'officially' tickable?

Happy birding
