To Tendaba in Gambia


7 February 2012.

We left the vultures behind, and continued to the east.

13:22: Kalagi village.

We arrive at a bridge over a tributary of the Gambia river, marking the border between the Western and Lower River divisions of Gambia.

On the north bank of the river: a great egret.

This is a great egret video.

In a restaurant garden: long-tailed glossy starlings.

Near the bridge, small mangrove plants have been planted, in rows, as part of a mangrove restoration project.

We arrive at Tendaba camp.

This video is about Tendaba.

In a small tree, a long-tailed glossy starling sings.
