March 2017 Morocco Trip Report

A trip report for my brief, rather last minute trip to Morocco (south of Marrakech), is now up on Cloudbirders. It can be found directly here, or via my Western Palearctic trip reports page here.

Hoopoe-lark, Tagdilt Track, 31/3/2017
Given the short nature of the trip, and the fact I plan on visiting Morocco several times in the future, we focused our time on the Atlas Mountains, Tagdilt Track and on connecting with a long-staying Pied Crow in Mhamid.

The trip was excellent, and in this beautiful country a load of fine birds (as well as the crow) were seen - African Crimson-winged Finch, Hoopoe-lark, Pharoah Eagle Owl, Fulvous Babbler, Blue-cheeked Bee-eater, Maghreb Wheatear, Seebohm’s Wheatear, Maghreb Lark and Moussier’s Redstart being just some examples!
