This is a green sandpiper video.
10 February 2012. After our arrival in Tendaba, to the Gambia river bank. 16:58: a green sandpiper on the bank.
A hose has leaked; creating a small puddle of water near a bush. Now, in the dry season, this is a welcome waterhole for birds. The bush means that, if a human or other intruder approaches, the birds can quickly fly to cover.
The water atracts seven red-billed firefinches. Also lavender waxbills; and common bulbuls.
Not much later, the water was gone.
