Birds around Kotu, Gambia


This 2012 video is called Gambia birding near Kotu Creek.

Monday 13 February.

After yesterday, we are back in Kotu, on the west coast of the Gambia.

A blue-breasted kingfisher.

Also some house sparrows, whose ancestors, it seems, arrived in Gambia in the 1980s as ship “passengers”.

Senegal coucal. Little bee-eater.

We are going to Brufut Woods again.
