Morocco Day Twelve to Fourteen

A few highlights from the last couple of weeks:
Erg Chebbi 
Thick-billed Lark 
Desert Sparrow 
Spotted Sandgrouse 
Birding with nomads 
Jaffa photographing Thick-billed Lark
Breakfast on the terrace celebrating 218 species, 7 additional sub-species (225 if your Dutch)

Spent the last couple of days encountering the enigmatic Andalusian Button-Quail before heading back to Marrakech. A great trip and cleaned up on everything with 23 personal WP ticks and a trip list of 218-225.
Thanks to Chris Townend (Jaffa from Wise Birding Holidays ) for organising everything while Lee, Darryl and I sat back and enjoyed the show.

WOW - 218 with 23 newbies, must have been your first trip? (i had 35 on mine). V envious, great country, friendly people, good weather and nice food.

As Arnie says 'i'll be back'....
