Hi Neil,

Back from a short stint in Mahale. Not much time for birding, as I was in Management Mode ('where are my binocs?') but a great show of Euro Hobbies hawking dragonflies each evening around dusk. It looked as though they were using the bright sky / lake to backlight the dragonflies in flight.

Flocks of Euro bee-eaters most days flying overhead.

Red-capped Robin-chat mimicking Crowned eagle from inside a dense bush; then mimicking emerald cuckoo, almost without a pause.

Ross's Turaco heard several times calling behind camp.

Oh, and chimps…
