GHANA February 2012

Just returned from another great trip to Ghana guiding for Zoothera Birding
Always a great trip and full of fantastic birds.

Highlights included: 6 species of Bee-Eater, 5 species of owl including the scarce Fraser's and Akun Eagle Owls, Hartlaub's Ducks, White-bellied Kingfisher, African Piculet and just outrageous views of the gorgeous Yellow-headed Picathartes.
Also kept up my 100% success of finding a vagrant wader with both Pectoral Sandpiper and American GP found by our group! Makes you wonder what is lurking out there in the autumn!
