Paul's 2024 World List (1 Viewer)

Amazing pictures. Giraffes, chimps, elephants and shoebills were what made me decide on Uganda but a leopard would be incredible.

I’ve been working through the birds of east Africa book sorting the birds into possibilities for my trip so I know that the different areas of Uganda have an incredible wealth of species and that there are stunners all around.

Have a great trip. You’re definitely using your retirement well.
 
Having had some success on our pre-tour day yesterday, at the end of day one of our tour, my trip list sits at 120 species of which 117 were year ticks so my year list sits at 829 species. A check of eBird shows 35 additions to the lifelist.

I will play proper catch up on the list on my return.

A few pics from yesterday & maybe some pics from today later. African Wood-owl, Grey-capped Warbler, Black-and-white Shrike-flycatcher, African Goshawk, African Hobby, Ross's Turaco, African Grey Parrot & Scarlet-chested Sunbird.

All the best

Paul

Just love that Bee-eater!

Very tricky, but possible at Budongo (perhaps the easiest place to see it). Also Kivu ground-thrush and Ituri batis there - I only saw the latter, but the unexpected chimps made up for it! Enjoy, already looking forward to the trip report!
