This December 2011 video shows an African darter at Kartong, the Gambia.
Saturday 11 February 2012, in the morning.
After yesterday, still at Tendaba.
Pink-backed pelicans swimming on the Gambia river.
Grey heron. Western reef heron. Pied kingfisher.
We are going by boat to the mangrove wetlands along the north bank of the river.
A great egret.
Many smallish silvery fish jumping out of the river water. Some of them jump into the boat. A royal tern catches one. Royal terns are a marine species. However, sea water penetrates the river water still here, making it brackish.
Some photos of birds in the mangroves are here.
Two spur-winged geese, a male and a female.
A blue-breasted kingfisher, diving every now and then.
A white-throated bee-eater in a tree.
Whimbrels (looking for fiddler crabs) and a hamerkop on the muddy banks.
A Goliath heron, the world’s largest heron, on the right bank, flying away soon.
This is a Goliath heron video.
A common sandpiper. A Montagu’s harrier; both probably migrants from Europe.
A female black-headed weaver, drinking from a mangrove branch just above the water.
in a tree near the water, an African scops owl.
A squacco heron.
We go back to the big river.
An African spoonbill on a sand bank.
