Re Masked Owls in Tasmania

On the Tasman Peninsula at Port Arthur there is a pair of Masked Owl 
breeding regularly in the left hand  Eucalyptus globulus (Tasmanian blue 
gum) if you stand outside at the Commandant's cottage facing north.    At 
dusk the pair regularly leave the tree which has a large hollow about half 
way up on the inland side of the tree.   This is the easiest place to see 
the Masked Owl at present however birders should be aware that using a flash 
may inhibit the birds' ability to see and hunt and could cause blindness.  I 
understand that in the UK using a flash on night birds is illegal.
