Green-breasted Pitta display: our Uganda trip highlight!
Callan and Deirdre have just returned from an eventful trip to Uganda where a displaying Green-breasted Pitta was voted trip highlight by the participants. Other top highlights included an extended sighting of African Green Broadbill, Black Bee-eater, and a steely-eyed Shoebill at the end of a boat trip that seemed at one stage might be completely rained out. Mammal highlights were of course close encounters with Mountain Gorillas, but also the surprise encounters with chimpanzee in Kibale NP, and a dramatic lion sighting in Queen Elizabeth National Park. The camaraderie of our two drivers as well as the thousands of butterflies were other highlights mentioned.
