I went looking for the owl this evening after work, and after about an hour
of searching, found it within 10m of the spot described below.  As of 5:10pm
August 1, it was in the lower canopy of a stand of large trees 10m up the
path towards D gate (sorry, I don't know what the trees were) from the tree
described below.

Cheers, Mike

Hi everybody -

I have received an update (see below) from Phil Moors on the elusive
Powerful Owl in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne, Victoria.  Please
note that this was sent to me at about 3:00pm yesterday (31 July).


the owl's been sighted again today by Helen Aston. It's in an
Acmena (labelled) more or less above the path at the extreme
southeastern corner of Fern Gully. It's out on a limb above a tree-fern
near the corner of the Fern Gully Bed at a path junction. Nearest gate
is E Gate, walk c 150m down main path, Canna Bed on your right, and a
further 20m on your left path forks - the bird should be above you.
