Central Morocco - March 2019

It was another very successful WINGSPAN TOUR of this beautiful part of Africa and resulted in an impressive list of nearly 200 species. The trip was made so much more pleasurable because the group were so fantastic, they gelled really well. Plenty of banter, lots of laughs and some terrific birding. Highlights included three sightings of Barbary Falcons, also Pharaoh Eagle Owl, Egyptian Nightjar, Desert Sparrow, Desert Warbler, Steaked Scrub Warbler and lots of encounters with Sandgrouse.
