Central Morocco February 2012

Our arrival at Marrakech was greeted by bright sunlight, the snow covered Atlas Mountains looked clear and 
beautiful in the distance and it was quite warm. The group arrived in stages throughout the day and those that 
arrived earlier were soon finding birds around the new 
terminal. The Aptly named House Bunting was found 
inside the terminal building! 
A small flock of Spanish Sparrows were found in the 
gardens together with the loud Common Bubul, there 
was also Greenfinch, Linnet, Spotless Starling, White 
Wagtail, Common Kestrel and several White Storks
circled up on the thermals.
