Capitalism ? Hm !   I think it's that the people involved, whether it's the CLC 
or the landowners, are used to getting large amounts from govt departments, 
universities, or large companies by way of grants for development, training, 
etc., and they are applying that thinking to allowing birders on their land.
As Laurie has said, if they lowered the price they may well get more overall 
revenue from larger numbers of visitors, but I doubt they'll get too many at 
$450. But then maybe that is what they want, just a few at a high price. 
However, not from this boyo.

But people are paying it, for the time being anyway. I think it's too expensive 
too, but that's capitalism for you. Given that the birds won't hang around 
forever, they need to make hay while the sun shines, as they say.
