13 February 2012 in Kotu, the Gambia.
Still on the golf course, late in the afternoon.
A male splendid sunbird feeding at red flowers.
Close to it, a swallow-tailed bee-eater. See another photo of that species here.
A black kite (or: a yellow-billed kite?) tries to drive away a hooded vulture.
A double-spurred francolin.
The golf course is separated from the river by mudflats. These attract three lapwing species: spur-winged, black-headed, and African wattled lapwing.
Their smaller relative, the ringed plover, is present as well.
So are their bigger, more distant, relatives, whimbrel and Senegal thick-knee.
