BLACK SWAN (Cygnus atratus)
Biodiversity > Birds > Rare visitors and vagrants

Vagrant. Four records, two undated. Hindwood (1940) recorded that the Black Swan had been seen in the Group in 1916 and 1933. McKean & Hindwood (1965) noted a Black Swan had been recorded in the preceding 15 years, but gave no details. Dean Retmock wrote to Keith Hindwood in 1969 noting that he had at some stage seen a Black Swan, but also gave no details of the sighting (K.A. Hindwood papers, ML).
