An up-date on gorilla tracking in Uganda’s Mgahinga Gorilla National Park – currently the 9 strong Nyakagezi group are still on the Rwanda side of Muhavura. Gorilla tracking in Mgahinga is therefore suspended until such time as the gorillas have return to the Ugandan side of the volcanoe.
Researchers from the International Trust for Forest Conservation (ITFC) have identified, close to the Mubwindi Swamp (Ruhija section of the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park) the nest of a pair of African green broadbills. Small and bright in colour, this rare little green bird is highly sought after by twitchers alike. It is one of the Rift Valley Endemics and only found in this part of Bwindi. The nesting site is roughly 7 km from the Ruhija Park Headquarters. For those with upcoming birding trips to Bwindi, its worth a little visit to catch a glimpse of this amazing little bird.
