The Tanbi Wetland Complex is situated on the southern shore of the River Gambia and was declared a Ramsar Site in 2002. This is an excellent place for migrants as well as many resident birds with an impressive total of more than 360 species to date. Tanbi consists of a diverse habitat ranging from coastal lagoons, scrub, seasonal creeks and gallery forest. African Fish Eagle and Osprey both feed in the River Gambia plus waders including Ruff, Wood Sandpiper, Pied Avocet and Jack Snipe are all possible. Add to this African Spoonbill, Giant and Pigmy Kingfisher, plus Ducks, Plovers, Bitterns, Egrets, Herons, Cranes, Chats, Rollers and Turacos, you have the makings of a memorable excursion barely 30 minutes away.
