i had a walk around the hotel grounds at first light, but to be honest I was about an hour too early. I went to an area which is adjacent to the Senegambia hotel and played a Blue BreastedKingfisher call, eventually I had a response, and I saw the bird but could not get a photo due to a high wall. I did see another pair of Paradise Flycatchers and a Yellow Crowned Gonalek.
After Breakfast I went into the Senegambia grounds, Jackie spotted the Blue BreSted Kingfisher and I got a few Shots. We also found a Hammerkop, Broad Billed Roller, Black Kites, and White Crowned Robin Chat. There were also a few Mnitor Lizards around
It is too difficult getting my photos uploaded to blogpost through my IPad while in Africa so apologies.

- I have been digiscoping for around 18 years now and through persistence and good equipment I am getting great results. I use a Swarovski 80hd spotting scope and a Sony RX100 camera which has just replaced my old faithful Nikon P5100. The majority of my bird watching takes place in County Durham in England which has a variety of different habitats from coast to moors. Digiscoping is great because it allows me to get good photos without disturbing birds. VIEW THE LATEST PHOTOBOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
