As the observer says he does not live far from the location, i.e. the
Werrington NSW area, it would be most unlikely that he would confuse a
Black-necked Stork with a Straw-necked Ibis. Straw-necked Ibis are very
common here, both singly and in flocks at this time of the year.

I would not think it likely that the bird is still in the area, I think a
lot of birds moving North/South avoid the Sydney metropolitan area and come
down through the Nepean valley, but only seem to stay for a day or two
before continuing with their journey.
