Nick Marshall – The Gambia (March 2020)

Thank you Jules for arranging this tailor made birdwatching holiday to The Gambia for me and accommodating last minute changes .. I was so lucky to actually enjoy this holiday, returning just before the world shut down due to Corona Virus … 

Malik Suso, my fabulous bird guide was known throughout the country and was amazing company and extremely knowledgeable, I had a fabulous time, even visited a local school (supported by a friend in Norfolk) on Commonwealth Day (pic below)!  Mandina Lodges was amazing, such a beautiful setting.  I also stayed at the Chimp Island Project upstream on the river Gambia and Bakotu Lodge. 

Here are just some of my many photos
