THE bird book for the Gambia and Senegal
on 31 March 2012
If you are birdwatching in Gambia or Senegal, this is the book you want. I'm just about to head off to The Gambia for the second time, and I spent a while researching the market for the best bird guide. Ideally I wanted a book with photographic plates for all species, but I don't think such a book exists for all 568 species recorded in Senegambia (and if it did the cost would probably be prohibitive!) So this one is your best bet. Each species is clearly shown with a colour illustrative plate, and has as much supporting information (distribution, male/female variants, habitat etc) as you will need. Happy hunting and good luck!
