My arrival in Tanga co-incided with the migration path of some of the most beatiful birds I’ve ever seen.  They were Carmine Bee-eaters.  They look like a sort of small child’s version of what a tropical bird looks like and as Steve drove me to the Yacht Club there they were, sitting on a telephone wire.  Of course I didn’t have my camera ready but have managed to track down a suitable graphic.


Oh and well done Althea and chums.  They raised over £300 and the weather wasn’t too bad.
