Mozambique 28th February - 21st March 2003

  • With a coastline of 2700 km, Mozambique is a huge country. Ornithologically, however, the River Zambezi effectively divides the country into two, marking the boundary between the avifaunas of Eastern and Southern Africa. With this trip being the concluding stage of a seven-month birding extravaganza of Southern Africa...Jos Stratford reports.

Central Mozambique: 12 – 23 December 2002

  • The road to Rio Savaan passes through some spectacular floodplain habitat. Birds recorded along here included numerous Rufousbellied Heron, Little Bittern, Wattled Crane and Saddlebilled Stork. Approximately 11.7km down this road there is a turn off to a new prawn factory and at a patch of coastal thicket near this turn off we recorded a pair of Coppery Sunbirds as well as large groups of Redheaded Quelea in the floodplain...Duan Biggs reports.

South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe 10-25 October 2001

  • We then took a dhow out to the Archipelago, a world heritage site and national park.  We camped at Gabriels' Camp for two nights.  On the full day we went to Isla Bazuaruto and on the way out we passed a small group of three Sooty Terns.  On the island Peter and I explored the dried out swamp in the dune slacks.  Here we saw Madagascar Bee-eaters, which were excavating holes in the seaward face of the dunes...David Kelly reports
