Ghana Day 1 Sakumono Lagoon and Afia Beach

First day on another trip to Ghana (2013 trip report HERE). Targeting some new areas this time and concentrating in the forests in the south and west. Today Jaff and I were waiting for the other trip members so had a look round Sakumono Lagoon and did some seawatching off Afia Beach. 
E-bird list for Sakumono HERE. Additionally had Royal Terns, Pomarine Skuas (2+) and Arctic Skuas (10+) off Afia Beach.
