Central Morocco March 2011

The group assembled at Menara Airport at 11:30am, some had travelled the day before and spent the night in 
Marrakech whilst the rest of us arrived from Madrid with Easyjet at 11am. 
We met our driver Ahmed who guided us to our bus but not before a torrential downpour had subsided. I can’t 
believe it, I came away from Spain to enjoy some African sunshine all I get is cold miserable wet, weather! 
Not a good start! 
We loaded our luggage onto the bus and headed for the hills! The single species of bird that we found around 
the airport which started off our list was Common Kestrel and that was all. We noted Barn Swallow and a 
small flock of swift species on the way to our hotel but not much else other than House Sparrows and Collared 
Doves in Ourika when we stopped to buy supplies for lunch.
