Welcome to my site about Gambia birds. I spend several months each year at Balaba Nature Camp in The Gambia, and I love watching the fantastic variety of bird life both where I live and further afield. I wanted to share this with others, and I hope this site will be the perfect way to do that.
I am not a bird expert, but more of an enthusiast. Although I can recognise many birds by sight now, and I can often identify others when I look them up in the field guide, I have not reached the stage when I can confidently identify all Gambia birds, so if you find I have made a mistake, please do let me know. I am also a keen (but amateur) photographer, and I hope to share some of my photos here too.
My blog (see ‘Recent posts‘) will be the place where I share my day-to-day bird news, and I am hoping to add information about different places in The Gambia where you can watch birds, including perhaps some lesser known spots. However, I don’t pretend that my site will be a definitive guide to where to watch birds, but more of a personal selection.
If you want to know more about me and where I live, do check out my ‘About‘ page.
I hope you enjoy looking at my site. It’s still very new, but I am intending to add more over the next few weeks, so do check back from time to time to see what’s new. And, of course, I hope you will leave some comments too.
