Dear Gary,
I'd be interseted in a precise location for the owl. I am familiar with the 
area and have walked the river bank birdwatching many times. I haven't seen one 
yet and I'd love to get a life tick.In good faith - I am a member of BOCA, 
Birds Australia and have contributed to the Atlasing project.
