Undeterred from their exertions on the very successful mid-week visit to
Campbell Park the two Terriers then called in to the Canberra North Bowling
Club to provide this report. Firstly, as we suspected the owl does change
perching locations in this area and obviously is often hard to find. Thanks
to the perseverance of T1 it was found in a very dense cypress type tree,
third from road, next to the open drain. Last Friday it was observed
consuming a clearly identifiable greater glider and today a change of diet
perhaps. Photos from my basic digital camera suggest either a sugar glider
or a squirrel glider. For the benefit of a large and increasing COG
readership would some obliging member with sophisticated zoom equipment
visit Turner in it's new position to confirm the identity of the latest
predation. Thanking in you advance.................T2
