Author's notes

Sorry, these photos aren't great these were the best of many attempts believe me :). It was quite short maybe 30cm tall at most with mottled brown colouring with a cream patch around the chest. Making a high pitched whoop wooo call, have had other opinions suggest southern boobook owl :).
