Friends,

I have had to make the difficult decision to shut down the SightingsReport.com website. It was a labor of love from the beginning, but after more than two years of hard work and financial investment it has not gained the level of community engagement needed to continue.

While I truly enjoyed building the site and connecting with members about their experiences, I simply cannot continue to pay the monthly fees and spend the time on maintenance to keep the site going. With so many free services online, it is easy to come to expect that building websites is trivial and they don't incur expenses, but that is not the case for sites such as this one.

Thank you for your interest and support, and maybe we'll bump into each other in the future.

All the best,

Harold
