Gambia November 2009

Our flight was on time arriving late-afternoon at Banjul in hazy sunshine, first impressions as we came in to land were 
of a lush green, very flat landscape with lots of open spaces and water. The mighty river looked huge especially at its 
mouth. As we descended the steps from the aircraft the heat hit us, a very hot breeze with low humidity. Within 
seconds we were scrambling for our bins as a group of Vultures circled above the airport, 7 Hooded Vultures, our 
first tick. Along the airport apron a group of 25 Cattle Egrets fed in the grassy scrub and on the terminal building sat a 
couple of Speckled Pigeons, beautiful birds.
