I would like to add my compliments to Keith and Lindsay for their efforts in 
maintaining Kingfisher Park over the years, and my congratulations on their 
impending retirement. Even way over here in Canada, Kingfisher Park is well 
known in birding circles. I am also very pleased to hear that the property is 
in good hands! Congratulations to Carol and Andrew. During my several visits to 
Australia, I have visited Kingfisher a number of times, and I am thrilled to 
know that I will be able to visit again on my next trip!Gary DavidsonNakusp,

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.
