Birding in The Gambia

Last year we enjoyed our fourth or fifth visit to The Gambia, which is a haven for birders. While my wife and I could not be called bird watchers, we do enjoy looking at birds, and The Gambia is certainly the place to do that, with over 560 different species recorded.

They start gathering in the trees about 9.00 am, waiting for the feeding at about 11.00, and for those who haven't seen vultures close up, it is quite a site!
