The only owl I've seen in Mosman was a Powerful Owl in October 2001 at the end of Whiting Beach Road (at the back of the Zoo). As a novice birder I didn't believe my eyes until later that week I read in the Mosman local paper there had been Powerful Owl sightings in the area.
On several occasions I have seen Tawny Frogmouths in Beauty Point (aka Mosman - most likely the same pair). Beauty Point is just round the corner from the location you give below. Earlier this year my parents had a pair sleeping for a few weeks (during the day) on a powerline protected slightly by a palm. I could get within a couple of metres from them standing on a balcony. They occasionally opened their large eyes and where quite undisturbed by my presence.
Could it be a Tawny?
