The Guinean Cock-of-the-rock footpath undergoing improvement

In November 2013, any Guinean Cocks-of-the-rock present on their breeding site would have been surprised to discover the appearance of a viewing screen, new barriers and other changes.

These improvements, however, were undertaken while the birds themselves were absent. Surprised but satisfied, the Cocks-of-the-rock were able to display with less disturbance during this new breeding season, as evidenced by the display sites now newly visible! These spots had not been watchable for several years!

The next batch of improvements is due in the first half of 2014 with the installation of an interpretative trail to give visitors information about the biology and ecology of the Guinean Cock-of-the-rock.
