Central Morocco April 2008

During early April and over a period of 10 days our group of seven wing-spanners toured the wonderful 
countryside of Morocco, visiting the high Atlas Mountains, the stony plains of the ‘Hammada’, the southeast 
region of Tafilalt, (the area closest to the Sahara), the lush Sous valley, the coastal estuary of the Oued Sous 
and the Souss Massa national park near Agadir. During our attempt to see the wonderful array of bird species 
that Morocco has to offer we witnessed bright sunshine, thunderstorms and a sandstorm of epic proportions. 
Our birding-time was cut by about 40% during the three day desert storm but despite the weather we 
managed to see a total of 180 species including some rather special birds such as Bald Ibis, Desert Sparrow, 
Crimson-winged Finch, Black-crowned Tchagra, Pharoah Eagle Owl, Desert Warbler, Tristram’s 
Warbler, Brown-necked Raven, Houbara Bustard, Egyptian Nightjar, Mousierre’s Redstart, Fulvous 
Babbler, Plain Martin, Little Swift, Marbled Duck and Hoopoe Lark to name but a few.
