  7. Hi jak, Thanks for the reply, It was in Sept 2008 (I think that I took the flamingo video) I think it would be a disaster if they changed the layout of the lake, it looks like a very delicate eco balance and if they start messing around with it it will only get worse. as you said there are hundreds of unfinished properties around the lake and lots of flat land to build on around the lake, so to drain it makes no sense. Could you nice people add your pics to the gallery so I can see where you have bought your dream homes. Has anyone ever seen any wild boars there are supposed to be lots around the area. Hi Kamal Many thanks for the compliments, as you say you definitely need a car to stay around the lake. If anyone is interested Bafa lake is a fantastic place to visit and stay (about 1 hours drive through Milas). As for restaurants The Agora (on the main road) is and old favorite of ours, but their prices are slowly creeping up. A mile or two towards Milas is a restaurant called Esenteppe above a shop near the fish factory its cheap and cheerful. Guvercinlic is great for food around the sea front.
  8. I will put more pics in my albums, I work in the water treatment business so I know how fast pollution can kill a lake or river, lets hope they can sort it out fast.
  9. I took Abi's advice and have started this thread and would like to know any information regarding the lack of flamingos on Tuzla lake over the last two years. I have a video on youtube: Also no my web site in the property for rent bit, showing how many flamingo's where on the lake in 2008. Does anyone know the reasons for this? I have been told that there is a lot of untreated sewage is being discharged into the lake, has any info on this? A bit about myself I bought a wreck of a farm house (I have attached some pics) and have been renovating it over the last 5 years so I know a bit about the area. I think I was one of the first Europeans buy in the area, so I know a bit about the area.if any one has any info please let me know.
  10. Hi Abi Many thanks for the welcome, I will take your advice and start a new thread I am a novice at this so it may take some time to get going. Keep smiling, Steve

  12. Hi kamal I am glad you are enjoying your place, I am renovating an old farm house just around the corner from you in a small village called Ucpinar (three wells) next to the village of Dorttepe (four hills) I have been in this area for 5 years and it is growing all the time, much more building than sales over the last 2 years, I think that you are correct in thinking this is a great investment area but due to the recession it has put everything back 2 or 3 years, and due to the construction companies building much faster than they are selling it will take several years for the demand to catch up with the over supply so if we are patient we should be ok. One worry I have is the lack of flamingo's on Tuzla Lake. Up till around 2 years ago I could count 50 or 60 birds on the lake at any time but over the last 2 years i have seen none I put a vid on youtube showing the flamingos. I have read that a lot of untreated sewage is being pumped into the lake and this cannot be good! Keep smiling, Steve B
