Suzanne’s month in Ghana – part 1

GRRRR… Originally posted yesterday but I managed to delete the post when trying to post today’s part 2. Apologies if this is slightly different from the original post but I’ll do my best.

David’s been asking me to post some photos from my month in Ghana ever since I got home. I can quite easily ignore his requests but after a few gentle requests from the East London birders at drinks in Hornchurch on Friday night I have decided to give in and publish a few posts. The first couple will just be some scenery photos but there are some birds, insects and flowers to follow. Just keep in mind that the bird photos were just record shots to prove to David that I wasn’t stringing anything!

These were taken during our trekking, cultural and project phases of the expedition. The next post will cover the rest and relaxation phase, which is when I did most of my birding.

Fume village, note the vodafone building. There are three main mobile phone companies in Ghana, all of which donate paint to shop-keepers and stall-holders in exchange for free advertising. The country’s full of red, pink and yellow buildings now. P1000996_edit
