Cattle Egret

Long-Tailed Cormorant
Squacco Heron
African Jacana
All the above were photographed at a small pond near Kotu Bridge in The Gambia. The pond can't of been much bigger than the average village duck pond and supported more than it's fair share of the country's flora and fauna. It was a little microcosm of the Gambian ecosytem. I could have wasted away the whole day there had it not been for the unbearable heat, unbearable persistence of an overly friendly local "guide" and the unbearable lack of a Fanta Tropical!
