Lake Victoria water levels are the lowest that I have observed in my 8 years of 
observations there.

Interesting observations are Whiskered Terns that I had only observed there 
three times before (Jan & February) appear to have been there permanently over 
November & December. Whiskered terns also common in

Only very low numbers of small waders have been present  during November and 
December and I never recorded any Curlew Sandpipers. It is very unusual in 
these parts to see sharp-tailed Sandpipers & Red-necked Stints, without Curlews 
also being present.

At dusk on the 28/12 there were 4 Hooded Plovers with the red-caps about 1/2 
way along to the Golf Course from the car park. Three adults and one immature. 
They were not there on the morning of the 31/12.
