Farmland near Mbour

Farmland near Mbour


Stopping somewhere north of Joal not too far south of Mbor… a white persons farm… remnants of millet crop stubble laying in dry fields… zebu cattle minded by small boys. The fenced farm has ungrazed savannah … a wind pump creating a pond.
This is apparently where there is a huge roost of turtle doves… we only saw a few coming down to drink.. a malachite kingfisher, green sandpiper… several species of dove.. namaqua, collared types and a black billed wood dove. paradise whydah male.
