the Mountain Saw-wing, although we were to see these better later in the day. After luch, we climbed even higher to the scrub at the top of the treeline eventually locating a massive flock of Mt Cameroon Speriops, which are found no-where else in the world as well as Brown-backed Cisticola. In the afternoon we caught up with Western Green Tinkerbird and better views of the saw-wing. We also enjoyed more looks at Green Longtail, Little Oliveback and Cameroon and Ursula’s Sunbirds. More
