We left Tendaba and headed back to the coast. Birding along the way proved tough, not too many new trip birds. Tijan called a local guide who as waiting at the roadside when we arrived. Our journey now off road, through wood and scrubland took us to a concealed hide. The feeding station consisted of a large concrete table, the edges covered in lose bark, branches straddled the shallow water pools. It provided an excellent photography opportunity, the birds being close and almost eye level. (Perhaps the wildlife trust will think about similar ideas in Northumberland?)
