On Saturday 30 Oct on the Atherton tableland, a group of us drove down a
lane near Atherton and saw an incredible "flock" of Barn Owls - we
estimated 25+ but assumed some repeat birds.
However, 4 of us returned last night and counted 32 separate birds most
within 1 km along the lane - quite a remarkable sight.
Is this congregation of owls in these numbers unusual?
