Well I'm still going around with my mouth open in amazement at the incredible scenery (2 more pics below). I haven't yet been out early enough in the day so I'm not seeing too many birds - but maybe that is to be expected in this thick vegetation.

Have managed to add Woodland Kingfisher and Klaas's Cuckoo, both of course resident not migrant here, African Pygmy-Kingfisher, always nice to see, and three West African birds as lifers - Red-necked Buzzard (the common West African buzzard), African Pied Hornbill and Northern Puffback.

Stunning pictures and great lifers to add to your list - I wish I'd paid more attention at school and become a geologist!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Well Day 7 was the best yet in terms of West African species. I added the good old Helmeted Guineafowl to the country list, but Piping Hornbill, Hairy-breasted Barbet, Brown Babbler and Square-tailed Saw-Wing brought my West African species tally to 11.
