No posts for a while, as I have been away leading a 2nd successful trip to GHANA. An excellent country with plenty of exciting birding as you sweat profusely in the humid Upper Guinea Forests - I love it!
Highlights included, Pel's Fishing Owl, Standard-winged Nightjar, Black and Rosy Bee-Eaters, White-crested Hornbill, a Pectoral Sandpiper in almost exactly the same place as I found one last February(!) (I'm sure plenty of yank waders must pass through here!) and of course the Yellow-headed Picathartes.
Some Photos from the tour....Elephants at Mole NP
Shining Blue Kingfisher
The Atewa Forest - where gems like Long-tailed
Hawk, Blue-headed Bee-Eater and Congo Serpent
Eagle can be found.....
Red-throated Bee-Eater - Common in Mole NP,
but always a treat
