In addition to the records at the Georges River that Peter refers to there have been three records in the Sydney area since 2000 to my knowledge. A pair was observed in flight at North Ryde on 25.10.04, a pair was at a dam near Bringelly on 06.12.05 and a single adult was seen at Werrington on 10.05.06.

The presence of a young bird in the Sydney area can easily be explained as a case of juvenile dispersal. One young bird that I colour-banded at Bulahdelah in 2003, which would have fledged in December 2003, was found dead at Casino, North Coast NSW in April 2004, a distance of 400 km.

Can anyone provide me with contact details for the WIRES group that has the stork? Anyone have more details of the find?
