Regarding this possible N. Pintail at Lake McLarty on 5 January, Greg Clancy wrote

As far as I am aware the only other Australian record was of an adult male at Cowans Pond, near Grafton, north coast NSW, first located by Dick and Margaret Branch a few years back.

There are in fact four accepted records for Australia.
1. RAC case 111 Chandela Swamp, WA 12.07.1986.
2. BARC case 311 Cowans Pond, near Grafton, NSW, August 2000.
I was the last to see this bird but malicious rumours started by those that subsequently dipped that I'd scared it off are entirely without foundation!
3. BARC case 403 Darwin NT 19.10.2003.
4. BARC case 445 Parry's Lagoon, Wyndham, WA 23.11.2004.
