Gambia November 2012 Tour 2

This was the second tour this year, following an earlier 12 day excursion on November 5 - I6 with a group
of photographers. The weather was unusually hot and at times very humid but we soldiered on and amassed
an impressive list of 287 species. The highlights included; a sighting of Dwarf Bittern, the creek crawl at
Tendaba which produced 76 species of birds, a visit to the quarry at Wassu where a 100+ Red-throated Bee-
eaters flew around us and many other sightings of the fantastic variety of birds in the Gambia.
