PLEASE! If you see any mistakes, I'm 100% sure that I have wrongly identified some birds.
So please let me know on my guestbook at the bottom of the page

Below is my bird checklist from my visits to Africa. And as I never know when I “pop” by Africa it can be worthwhile to keep an eye out for updates!
