Central Morocco March 2013

A superb tour was enhanced by a great bunch of people making my job as tour leader a pleasure and a very enjoyable experience. The weather in general was pretty good although the low cloud base in the Atlas Mountains restricted our sightings as it did when we drove through the Tizi-n- Tichkla Pass on day two. Migration was restricted to passerine sightings with very few migrating raptors seen. However, nearly all of the must-see species of Morocco were seen well, these included:  Levaillant’s Woodpecker, Moussier’s Redstart, Crimson-winged Finch, Tristram’s Warbler, Scrub Warbler, Desert Warbler, Fulvous Babbler, Desert Sparrow, Hoopoe lark, Thick-billed Lark, Crowned and Spotted Sandgrouse, Barbary Falcon, Black-crowned Tchagra, Bald Ibis and Brown-throated Martin.
