Friday 3 February.
This is a video on a monitor lizard and monkeys in Abuko Nature Reserve.
Near the Darwin Field Station in Abuko Reserve, a red colobus monkey mother with her baby eats the last leaves, that species’ preferred food, off some branches. After the last leaf is eaten, they move away.
A squacco heron on the other side of the pond.
A red-billed firefinch on a tree trunk.
A green monkey on the footpath.
Another, more brightly green, animal in a tree: a green turaco.
A violet turaco in the tree next to it.
After Abuko, a small harbour. A pied kingfisher sitting on top of a shipwreck’s mast. Whimbrels. Great egret.
On a tree, not far away: pearl-spotted owlet.
