These areas are on the north side of the River Gambia, and well worth visiting for some species not normally seen on the south side. A guide is essential, both for finding the bird sites and getting there. Our guide sorted out the taxis at both sides, as well as shepherding us on the ferry, which is an experience in itself. Once off the ferry, the tidal peninsular to the north of Fort Bullen is a short walk, and has a variety of waders (including White-fronted & Kentish Plovers) and terns (Caspian, Royal & Lesser Crested) with the gulls. The area around Essau is very good for Northern Anteater-chat and Pygmy Sunbird, as well as Viellot's Barbet and Green-backed Eremomela. A variety of raptors also occurs here.
