On my arrival in Uganda in 2002, it would have been fair to say that my knowledge of birdlife was minimal. However it soon became obvious to me, that with over 1400 species living or visiting East Africa, they were one of the regions greatest attractions. I have since spent many hours watching and photographing them for pure personal pleasure, and during this time I have been amazed by their diverse shapes, colours, and activities. In this book I have collected a small selection of my favourite photographs of the birds you will easily come across, that I hope you will enjoy. Readers will enjoy a visual delight of over 150 species of East African birds.
Andy Gooch travelled to East Africa from England in 2002. Upon arrival, he immeadeately fell in love untamed beauty. He has been challenging himself to capture this beauty through a lense ever since.
