Wot? No pictures?

My trip this weekend is scheduled to be Lagos in Nigeria.
Without the camera, It could be a dull monologue, so here is a picture gallery taken from previous trips to Nigeria.
Common Wattle-eye
Grey-headed Kingfisher
Malachite Kingfisher
Blue-breasted Kingfisher
Yellow-billed Shrike
Scarlet-chested Sunbird

Yellow-throated Longclaw

Splendid Sunbird

I hope you liked them.

Now that I look with an ritical eye, I notice that all of these pictures came from Abuja. Abuja is a few hundred miles North of Lagos and was recently adopted as the administrative capital of Nigeria

Actually, the trip to Lagos was quiet with only a very few birds seen around the grounds of the Sheraton Ikeja, Lagos.

These included, Allied Hornbill, Western Grey Plantain Eater (always reliable) and Splendid Glossy Starling among the African Thrush and Common Bulbul.
