RFI – Hobart area (inc Eaglehawk Neck) – esp Masked Owl & Morepork

Hi All
I am one of a few Sydney birders heading to Eaglehawk Neck for some pelagic trips next weekend (19/20 August). We fly in/out of Hobart and are staying at Eaglehawk Neck. As some of us will have a day either side of the weekend for birding, and possibly the evenings too, hoping some of the resident birders or recent visitors might be able to help with a request for information on:
– recent sightings of nocturnal species (esp Masked owl and Morepork) in the Hobart/Tasman Peninsula area
– good sites near Eaglehawk Neck for nocturnal animal spotting
– good sites for Tassie endemics and/or anything unusual that is about right now. (In terms of sites, I think we have info on known sites from using the online and published guides – eg FernTree, Waterworks Reserve etc – it was more if anywhere that is known is doing particularly well right now or a site that is not in the guides.)
– sites near Hobart airport that are worth exploring (esp for Monday when we leave at variously different times).
