Wednesday 8 February.
After our arrival in Tendaba, a night’s sleep there (with a frog in the bathroom).
Today, from Tendaba to Janjanbureh, formerly called Georgetown, more to the east in the Gambia.
8:03: hooded vultures on a parking lot near the ferry across the Gambia river. The ferry is too small for the long queues of waiting lorries.
Beautiful Abyssianian rollers, common birds in the Gambia, are present.
On the bank of the Gambia river, great egret, grey heron, western reef heron.
On the boats on the bank, hamerkops and a squacco heron look for fish waste.
The ferry brings us to the northern river bank at last. Antlion pitfalls in the sand.
An Abyssinian roller on this bank as well.
A brown-necked parrot flies out of a tree.
