Birding Gambia

Hi there to everyone who follows my blog.

Well where do I start
I have to admit I know Richard Hanman very well. (and he is one of my close birding friends and managing director of  BBC)  I have co-lead and also been part of the groups / assisted the visits to Spain, and Portugal, and International destination's.  Don't get me wrong its not for the faint hearted. It can be dawn till dusk birding but that is really up to you, if you fancy a chill out day with rest and relaxation by the hotel swimming pool its no problem,
  But what you DO get is BIRDS.

Giant Kingfisher
 And birds in abundance and not just a glimpse of distant tree top birds or the back end of a bird disappearing from view, Its up front and in your face, you really do get up close without disturbing them, see my photos.

Laughing Dove

 With a comprehensive list of local guides and spotters who are connected to each other they research the areas before your visit, you get see the most difficult birds on your list easily,
 without these connections it would be almost impossible to view these hard to see birds, 
I have no hesitation in recommending any of the Bargain Birding Bird Club Trips.
"it does, exactly what it says on the Tin.
