IMAGES OF MOROCCO

Recently returned from another successful birding tour of Southern Morocco - I always consider myself to be very lucky to re-visit places I have been previously through my own bird tour company  and Morocco is certainly no exception. It is a fascinating country with wonderful scenery, ever changing light, great people, great food and some fantastic birds. All this with a consant connection to home as many of "our" migrants flood through the country at this time of year.
Here are just some of the images from my last trip - I hope you enjoy!  
More tomorrow......
