New Trip Report: Ghana

Here is a new report on Ghana. Great to see more and more people combining serious birding with serious mammaling (they also racked up over 400 bird species).

Ghana, 2021: Daan Drukker, 2 weeks & 41 species including Common Cusimanse, Gambian Mongoose, Pardine Genet, Pel’s Anomalure and Patas Monkey.

    Great report! Some high quality images of rarely-photographed species here. For example, this report contains what I think are the first published photos of the very distinctive Black Hawk Bat.

      Thanks! I didn’t know that alternative name for Pel’s Pouched Bat, but it’s quite spot on for a name. I was a bit confused myself when trying to identify it due to the seemingly forked tail, but thanks to Nils Bouillard, the identification was still possible, also because we had a good recording. Jacob Fahr was quite happy with the observation too

    Very cool report with plenty of nice sightings and useful information !
    Ghana has always been high in my next trip destinations list over the last few years for bee-eaters and pangolins so it will certainly be very useful
