March 31st Abuko and Home

Tijan picked us up one final time to take us to the airport via Abuko where we were successful in drawing out a Grey-headed Bristlebill and Collared Sunbird as well as getting better views of Malachite Kingfisher, Green Turacos and several other birds.

We finally said our farewells to Tijan – an excellent guide and great company – and headed for home. We’d seen 204 species (136 lifers for me) in what was the quietest part of the year and had several memorable experiences of the real Gambia that so many visitors don’t see.
