I hope this isn't too trivial a question, but I am hoping that there is
considerable experience of owl finding on this list! We would very much like
to see a Sooty Owl [not to mention a Masked & Grass Owl but they will be
other expeditions!] and I know they are sometimes seen in the Royal National
Park. On Thursday we will be returning nephews to Wollongong from Sydney, so
we will have the opportunity of doing some spotlighting on the way back to
Is right on dusk the best time to hear them calling? How often do they
call...if we stopped to listen in an area, how long should we wait before
assuming we are not in the right place? I have heard Lady Carrington Drive
is a good spot, any other suggestions in that area?
I know looking for owls is a fluky business so we will be looking for geckos
& mammals too.
