Morocco Birds

Post by Clive60 » Thu May 23, 2013 7:48 am

A few birds seen in Morocco last month, it was a coach tour not a birding trip so I wasn't in one place long enough to go out looking for long. Some were on migration to Europe.

Weather seemed a bit of a mixed bag. Beautiful pics though :wink:
Best regards

It was Dave, gales the first day in Marakech, rain next day going to Casablanca and only about 16c, later to Fes and down to the Sahara it warmed up to around 28c and sunny. It was hot and sunny back in Marakech for the last two days but all I saw was the bathroom as the 'Marakech Express' arrived big time and I took over a week to recover!!
