Global bird news: 5 March 2010

by Doug JansonA bird tour in Gambia (a humorous account from a novice birding spouse)

“It’s more than 40C (104F) and I’m not in charge of anything. I’m ducking from one inadequate scrap of bushy shade to the next behind a straggle of sweating binoculared figures chasing Hassan, our local bird guide. Hassan runs marathons in the Gambian sun.” [Telegraph]
