March is a very pleasant time to visit Morocco, with good weather, large numbers of migrating birds heading northwards to Europe and plenty of plants in flower, both on the coast and in the mountains.

We start our tour by flying in to Marrakech, and heading up into the High Atlas, near the snow line, where we will look for Levaillant’s Woodpecker, Seebohm’s Wheatear, African Crimson-winged Finches and Atlas Horned Lark.

We move from the mountains to the arid rocky steppe of the Tagdildt Track, home to various larks and wheatears, Cream-coloured Courser and Fat Sand Rat.
We will explore rock gorges in search of Pharoah Eagle Owl, Maghreb Wheatear and the endearing Gundi, before reaching the stony desert of the Tafilalt and the magnificent sand dunes of Erg Chebbi, home to some true desert specialities including Desert Sparrow, African Desert Wheatear, Fulvous Babbler and Egyptian Nightjar.

Heading westwards again, we will drive through the ancient landscapes of the Anti-Atlas mountains, keeping our eyes peeled for Barbary Falcon and Egyptian Vulture, and pass through the argan forest of the Sous Valley to end our tour of Morocco on the Atlantic Coast. From our base near Agadir, we will seek out more North African specialties, including House Bunting, Moussier’s Redstart, Black-crowned Tchagra and, with luck, the Endangered Northern Bald Ibis.

Along the way, we will pass through spectacular landscapes, find interesting spring flowers, stay in comfortable local hotels, and enjoy some great hospitality.
