West Auckland being kept awake by barn owls

There have been a few ruffled feathers on a couple of West Auckland Facebook pages over the past week with a number of unconfirmed sightings of barn owls.

Barn owls are widespread in Australia, and it's thought the New Zealand population came here from across the Tasman.

Producer Jeremy Parkinson spoke with Green Bay resident Kathy McLean who was alerted to a strange sound late on a Saturday evening.
