Weaver, find Mountain Robin-Chat and African Hill-Babbler, watch a pair of bold Black-collared Apalis, and obtain brief views of a male Banded Wattle-eye. At the grassland edge we found our first White-bellied Tit and Pectoral-patch Cisticola displaying over the grasslands, before returning to town to discover that our hotel had no running water! After a quick couple of phone calls we were back in the vehicles and down to central Bamenda, soon to be installed in our comfortable new hotel, running water and all. More

Mountain Robin-Chat (which is fairly easy to see), but there are also plenty of mousebirds. From about 1,750m to the radio station is grassland, although below 2,300m or so it probably used to be montane forest. Down the north-west slope of the mountain (from the radio station towards Nitele) you finally reach some primary forest, starting as high as 2,300m. More
