Flooded grassland near Bango

The wet grassland and swampy areas were full of wintering Palearctic migrants. Wood Sandpipers were everywhere along with Green Sands and Greenshanks. Spanish and Yellow Wagtails foraged next to resident Black Crakes while a quick scan of the horizon usually produced a hunting Montagu's Harrier, Woodchat Shrikes and stunning male African Stonechats.
