   Published sightings for the week ending 28 Oct 2014.

   Mon 27 Oct Barking Owl D'Aguilar National Park--Maiala picnic ground
   Spontaneous spotlighting/reptile-spotting trip up Nebo/Glorious last
   night. One Barking Owl called at length from the trees across the main
   road at the top of Maiala picnic ground at about 10:30pm. A poor
   attempt to vocally mimic its call surprisingly brought the bird out of
   the trees and onto the powerlines, where it sat for about two seconds
   before flying down the road.
