Our January trip to Senegal went extremely well and as a keen photographer I always come back from any tour with lots of images. This time in Africa the choice and variety of subjects was mind-blowing and as well as my beloved birds, the mammals, insects plants, people and vivid scenes of this colourful country formed many happy memories that will last a lifetime.A huge thank you goes to Yeray, Carlos, Manolo and Gonzalo for their happy camaraderie.

Next year Yeray and myself plan to run a birding and wildlife tour to Senegal. (Full itinerary and costings to follow)I’m still looking through and editing some of the best from thousands of photos. I thought I’d post some raptor photos in this first blog about the Senegal trip and interestingly we managed to see 285 different species of birds, 35 of them were raptors. Here are just some of these fantastic birds…
