The Lamin Lodge in The Gamibia

The Lamin Lodge is a famous place for birding in Gambia; placed in the middle of mangrove forests and close to tidal mudflats. I had just a short stay there and was there to late on the afternoon (the early morning should be much better for birds). Nevertheless, it’s a good place for visiting the mangroves in Western Africa.

  5. Wow the Blue-cheeked Bee Eater is a handsome bird!

  6. The bee-eater is so beautiful! Love this nice-looking mangrove. Hope you can have a longer visit next time.

  7. The bee eater is so beautiful; I would love to see one in person. I have seen whimbrels and I love them too -- and it always makes me smile to know that at least some birds I'm familiar with are the same ones seen in other parts of the world.

  8. Breathtaking beauty in your photo of the bee eater.

  9. Fantastic pictures and love the Bee Eaters.

  10. Wonderful birds! I love the bee eaters, they're so pretty.

  11. The Blue-Cheeked Bee Eaters are so colorful! Quite a catch. The mangroves sound like a wonderful place to look for wildlife. The Whimbrels look like typical shore birds.

  12. I can see why that area is good for birds - you call almost hear the biodiversity!
