Dusk on the river Gambia – Sounds of Africa
Recordist: George VladNiokolo-Koba National Park, Senegal
Recommended charity: Panthera Senegal
Listen to a myriad birds call, including Yellow-crowned gonoleks, Red-eyed doves, Hadada ibis, Senegal coucals, African fish eagles, bulbuls, wood hoopoes, fishing owls, starlings, thick-knees and a host of others. At first listen it might all seem like a wall of sound, but immerse yourself in it and you'll start to notice individuals, repetition, patterns and a beautiful rhythm.
