Hi Peter,
Good summary of the Bowra situation on birding-aus; I had a a wealthy American client a couple of years ago who was very impressed with the place and actually got a group together to fund the purchase, hoping to give it to one of the well-known conservation bodies. The stumbling block proved to be the apparent need for hundreds of thousands of $ as management each year. This was a great shame as I too would love to see the place kept as is, and aided in recovering from stocking. I fear new owners taking it over, giving birders the flick then running intensive stocking and clearance. I thought the price was very reasonable too, it seems such shame we may lose this gem over what is a relatively paltry sum in business terms.
