A notable sighting, Ian, but a distraction from the matter of John Lennard's
insect.  Was your failure to address this ID issue deliberate or
inadvertent?  For myself, the little chap does not fall within the less than
0.01% of insects that I able to put a name to, but then I am not a
professional naturalist.  I am sure Crosbie Morrison would have been
prepared to have a go at it.  Geoffrey

Just now I raced out to a cacophony of calls - especially Pied 
Currawongs, A Raven, White Cockies - to see a very harassed Barn Owl in 
a fairly open small tree. It immediately flew off north-westish (sort of 
in your direction Milburn!). No opportunity to alert potential twitchers 
I'm afraid. It's not the first time I've seen a new ACT species in my 
own yard, but it doesn't happen very often.

Ah the rewards of working on a public holiday....
