Gambia November 2012 Tour 1

What a wonderful place The Gambia is, a perfect introduction to African birding, birds are everywhere! To prove my 
point, I am sitting outside my apartment, in the grounds of the Senegambia hotel, as I write this introduction, I can see a 
White-crowned Robin-chat, A Hooded Vulture, 3 Yellow-billed Shrikes and a Pied Crow all within a few meters of me 
and I can hear a multitude of other species.
This was, in fact, a photographic tour, I led 8 clients from Belgium for these past 11 days and the emphasis was most 
definitely placed on photography rather than listing species, we didn’t even have a bird log in the evening, however, I 
did keep a tally which amounted to 252 species.
Birding highlights included sightings of: African Finfoot, Painted Snipe, Black Coucal, Black Wood Hoopoe, Copper 
Sunbird and the rarest, a Dwarf Bittern.
