Barn Owl seen between Meringandan & Highfields

Post by Brendon & Judi Gray » Sun Dec 14, 2008 9:31 pm

Last night while driving home to Highfields from Meringandan, Brendon spotted an owl on a fence post on the Meringandan Road. We turned around to go back and have a better look and it was a beautiful barn owl, with its eyes focused on the ground below (presume looking for rodents etc). It was un-fased by us watching it, this is the first one that we have seen in this area.
