Range Description

This is a species of the most arid zones, though with occasional colonies into the Guinea savannah areas. There are scattered records from across the Sahel and also intoGambia, Guinea, northeastern Ghana, northern Cameroon, northern Uganda and northern Kenya (Larsen 1991, 2005). This gives a vast extent of occurrence (EOO) that far exceeds 20,000 km2. The species is not commonly encountered because of its highly seasonal behaviour. Nonetheless, the total area of occupancy must exceed 2,000 km2.
