On Saturday evening we were staying with friends on a farm just north of
Grenfell.  An owl came and sat on the TV aerial while were were dining
outside, and we were able to watch it for about 15minutes.  A global first
for us.  It could be identified as a young barking owl but it didnt oblige
with a bark.

Sadly, Weddin Mountains have been badly burned and the reserve and picnic
areas are closed.  We did see several red capped robins and a flock of
yellow rumped thornbill, south of the park.
