How kind, Trevor! Those years in Africa are bedrock for me, haunting my dreams and offering new ways to see and remember.


Such an evocative piece of writing. I've never been to the places you mention, nor seen the birds you write about, but I was transported into your life - if only for a few minutes. Beautiful writing.
Note to self: drag out that stamp collection featuring birds; it's been in that cupboard unloved for too many years.


Thanks, Laura. My stamp collection, which goes for long periods without my attending to it, is indeed a large one. I was blessed with generous older relatives who opened their collections to me when I began. Birds are well represented, although not by any design of mine. It was great fun going through the international ones to find portraits of "African" birds for this post and I'm glad you enjoyed it.


Id agree that birding your way is the most enjoyable. I like to just wander in a place and see what birds show up.

Beautiful variety of stamps; I'd imagine you must have a large collection.
