Mass Migration

East Africa is famous for the wildebeest migration, but other mass migrations can also be awesome. At the Coast, I have been fortunate to witness the migration of tiny isopods, less than one centimeter in length. These creatures are crustaceans, related to the crabs and prawns, but living on land.

Unusual sightings near Boni National Reserve

Boni and Dodori National Reserves in the far east of Kenya, and Boni and Lunghi forests between them, are little-explored but biodiversity-rich. A team from National Museums of Kenya and Nature Kenya carried out a brief bird survey in the area last month. Exciting sightings included mammals such as the endangered Aders’s Duiker and newly found Sengi (Elephant-shrew). Several birds were range extensions, and one bush shrike could not be identified from the guide books

New Migratory Birds Flyway Observatory Site launched at Tugumoi

The Tugumoi Ridge Flyway Observatory Site, the first of its kind in Kenya, offers vantage points for observing migratory birds as they make their way across the Kerio Valley. A flyway is a flight path used by birds during migration. Flyways generally span continents and often oceans. In the Rift Valley, the flyway becomes tunnel-like and birds use it to fly towards the Mau Escarpment and Lake Nakuru. Among the birds that sail on the flyway are Lesser Kestrels, European Honey Buzzards, Common (Steppe) Buzzards, Steppe Eagles, White Storks and Woolly-necked Storks.
