We have just returned (3.2.2010) from a week at Jolie Ville Luxor. As many will know this is a well visited birding site. We were probably the last people to be able to walk around the southern section of the island with the track in it's undeveloped state. As of 27.1.2010 the bulldozers and earth movers have moved in and have begun to flatten the area. (I have photographs of this). The development ( over the next 2 - 3 years) will double the amount of residential units and will lead to the landscaping of the entire island and the removal of much of the remaining natural environment. Sad times for birders intending to holiday there but you can always hire Abdou the resident bird expert to take you to the best localities.
