Garden Visitors

Here on our Mwanza compound we get a very different selection of birds visiting our garden.

In fact the only recognisable visitor is the ubiquitous House Sparrow – introduced to Africa in Kenya in 1950, these birds have spread throughout East Africa and there are now more in Tanzania than in the whole of the UK apparently

Our other regulars are much more exotic and I thought I’d post a few pictures of the latest batch of garden visitors.
