Brilliant news that the Lodge is to continue and to improve. Have much enjoyed my visits in the past and hope once more to make it "up there" for another sighting of that owl and trips up Mt. Lewis.

Best wishes to Lindsay and Keith for their retirement. May you have time now to enjoy some freedom to choose. Don't take on too much in your new life - it can be dangerous! Everyone thinks you have all the time in the world to help with whatever is happening around you but you need time for yourselves.

"Congratulations", and thanks so much, guys, for your efforts over the years.  
Now you'll have more (well-earned) time for birding!!

Hi Folks,

We know there have been plenty of rumours going round the last month about 
Kingfisher Park Birdwatchers Lodge being sold, well it has not quite happened yet 
but barring any last minute dramas the settlement will be on 4^th February. Both 
the business and the freehold property is going to transfer into the safe hands of 
Carol & Andrew Iles, who many of you will know as our neighbours and local bird 
guides. We will be retiring to our house which is only 8 minutes from the Lodge.

So after almost 10 years we are handing over to Carol and Andrew who first 
visited the Lodge in 1998 and were the resident bird guides at the Lodge from 
2000 for four years. They have been living next door for four years and have 
again become bird guides both for the Lodge and their own guiding business. 
Theyplan to do their utmost to maintain and improve the Lodge and grounds as 
somewhere for wildlife, especially the birds and birders, to enjoy for years to 
come and look forward to welcoming new guests and the long-time faithful. They 
will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience both from our area and from 
around the world where they have birded in about 100 countries. As we only 
owned the business and leased the property we found it frustrating not to be 
able to up-grade the property ourselves, this is something they intend doing. 
We wish them the very best in their new life.

Finally we would like to thank all of you who have visited the Lodge over our 
time here, it has been most rewarding meeting all the fantastic birders and 
wildlife enthusiasts. We have enjoyed sharing a little of the wildlife in our 
wonderful part of the world and trust you will support the new owners.
