Interesting, the last record I can find was 6 months ago and it is unlikely to have gone undetected at JWNR for so long given the attention the bird received after the first report last year. A new individual, the same individual returning, or perhaps one of the hybrids?
Worth dropping a note on the chatline assuming the date is correct and you've seen this bird in the past week.
