Following our visit to Awash National Park (see following post) we continued south to the very nice Harro Langano lodge on the south-east shore of Lake Langano for a two-night stay. Early the first morning we saw a pair of Yellow-fronted Parrots in the tall fig trees outside the lodge restaurant.
We headed around to the west shore of the lake to check out the compound of the largely disbanded Simbo Lodge. Here were loads of excellent birds including Gymnogene, African Orange-bellied Parrot, Rufous Chatterer, Red-necked Wryneck, Bare-faced Go-Away-Bird and White-bellied Go-Away-Bird.
Some locals showed us a pair of roosting Greyish Eagle-Owls. We flushed a small group of Ethiopian Epauleted Fruit-Bats.
