surprise pair of Pale Olive Greenbul, nearer the cost than I had previously seen them. After a leisurely lunch and good siesta we took a stroll along the nearby beach, where we watched Cape Gannet plunge-diving for fish. The rest of the tour was focussed on the Angolan escarpment, where we spent 4 nights split between two localities. On the way to the Gabela area we spotted a small flock of non-breeding Golden-backed Bishops in an old maize field, and our first Angola Swallows. More
