Central Morocco March 2017

8 intrepid ‘wing-spanners’ enjoyed 11 days of superb birding in this wonderful bird-watching destination. We listed over 190 species including most of the ‘Moroccan Specialities’ such as: Bald Ibis, African Crimson-winged Finch, Levaillant’s Woodpecker, Streaked Scrub Warbler, Moussier’s Redstart, African Desert Warbler, Tristram’s Warbler, Desert Sparrow, Pharaoh Eagle Owl………plus many more. The weather was almost perfect, sunny most days, a little windy at times, not too hot.
