Today we transfered from the Hamada deserts around Boumalne Dades to the sandy deserts around Merzouga visiting the Troda Gorge en route. We arrived at Merzouga in a dust storm so hoping the wind will abate for tomorrow.
New WP birds included Tristram's Warbler, Maghreb Wheatear and 'Moroccan Wagtail'.
Stopped off en route at a few migrant spots too including the temporary lake near Merzouga. The waterbirds were hunkering down in the dust storm.
