Trip Reports


Despite the extremely dry condtions and the lack of snow on the High Atlas Mountains we still managed to see 90% of the 'most-wanted' species that this tour has to offer. We had a couple of windy days in the Sahara Desert which limited our birding time and we had a couple of late afternoon thunderstorms, other than that we had good clear, blue sky and plenty of sunshine. We listed over 190 species including: Saharan Scrub Warbler, Tristrams Warbler, Desert Warbler, Egyptian Nightjar, Desert Sparrow, Blue-cheeked Bee-eater, Great-spotted Cuckoo, Bald Ibis, Black-crowned Tchagra, Little Swift, Levailant's Woodpecker and much more.
