Latest Trip Report of Morocco

groupThe eleven days produced a total of 146 species that included almost all of the desert specialities that we were hoping for: sandgrouse were conspicuous by their almost total absence, and we never connected with Thick-billed Lark, Scrub Warbler or Pharaoh Eagle Owl. And our afternoon searching for Houbaras proved fruitless, but as this species is now released and hunted just like pheasants and partridges in England it is somewhat devalued as a target species. We heard that fifty had been killed by visiting hunters in the previous month.
The two pre-tour extensions, four days on the coast around Agadir and the drive down from Tangier to Marrakech, added another fifty species and so raised the total to 196 - not quite as high as the same trip in the last couple of years but still a fine indication of what Morocco in early spring can offer

peter3Peter Jones writes: I have been to and written about Morocco so many times and yet it never fails to leave me with impressions of wonder, not least of vast empty tranquil spaces where it is possible to be completely immersed in nature, like a grain of sand is to a desert so but am I in life! Such a grand landscape is presented with perspectives beyond words, from the towering High Atlas Mountains to endless rolling dunes of the Sahara, from Palm lined valleys to multi-coloured striated flat topped mountains; it is a place of unimaginable beauty. The country also has an added attraction and great bonus for me acting as it does as a bridge between the more southerly regions of Africa and Europe for migratory birds. Little wonder I am constantly drawn by the calling of this exotic place and also its people.

Peter Jones, author, naturalist, co-founder of Spanish Nature and founder of the Andalucia Bird Society. Peter has been involved in a great many environmental projects and has had several works published over many years. Peter has a passion for birds, having also been involved in scientific research into birds for over 36 years, but his many interests also extend to flora and fauna. Peter is well known and liked by the great many who have already been guided by him in many different countries. There can be no finer testimony to Peter's popularity than the fact that many friends of various tour operators will sign-on tours in the knowledge he is their guide.
