Senegal wraps around The Gambia and shares many of the same species of birds.My wife and I spent 12 days travelling around that part of Senegal above the Gambia river with a small group of birders. It was very hot and I found it hard work, but there were some very good birds to see and photograph including 2 new Bee-eaters (Little Green and Carmine). The temperature was 34C on the day we left Dakar and 4C when we arrived in Birmingham! Not many birding companies visit Senegal. The official language is French whereas it is English in The Gambia.
