|Fishermen on Lake Victoria from the gardens (above).|
Marabous and African Open-billed Storks on the shore (below).
|Scarlet-chested Sunbird (Chalcomitra senegalensis).|
This is a widespread and exquisite sunbird.
|Palm-nut Vulture (Gypohierax angolensis) - it really does live substantially on oily palm-nuts!|
|Splendid Starling (Lamprotornis splendidus).|
|Woodland Kingfisher (Halcyon senegalensis); this delightful bird (we can't see its bright blue wings here)|
was everywhere the day I was there.
|Black-and-White-Casqued Hornbill (Ceratogymna subcylindrica).|
Probably the star of the day for me.
|Pied Kingfisher (Ceryle rudis).|
As in much of Africa - and east into Asia - this is one of the commonest birds along the lake shore.
|Egyptian Goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus) family on the lake.|
|Hamerkop (Scopus umbretta), a truly fascinating bird, not least because|
it is the sole member of its family, and it is unclear even what Order it belongs to.
|Vervet Monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus).|
|Striped Ground Squirrel (Xerus erythropus).|
|Unidentified dragonfly - sorry!|
