Committee's view
Background
Dates of sighting are imprecise, reportedly possibly seen in 1982. Wang & Hails (2007) cites Paul Bristowe from the British Armed Forces for this record, stating "but no details available". Lim (2009) likewise expresses uncertainly regarding this record, stating that "the most recent record was a bird seen off Changi in 1982". No primary sources are available. Both Wang & Hails (2007) and Lim (2009) puzzlingly accept this record despite the uncertainties. We are choosing to reject it.
Verdict Not accepted (Unverifiable)
