Egypt and Morocco
Both Egypt & Morocco we visited only briefly to see specific species, so the numbers of photos is not huge and we usually put the two together as the avifauna is quite similar. Both are desert countries, although the range of habitats in Morocco is much greater as it has the Atlas mountain range and a number of wetlands including the famous Merdja Zouga, where Slender-billed Curlew used to winter.Who knows, maybe another wintering site will be discovered there one day, although most birders now visit in spring, and the curlews used to leave quite early. Both countries enjoy coastlines, Egypt in particular having some difficult to see seabirds such as White-eyed Gull and White-cheeked Tern. The desert regions hold many Wheatears, Larks and Sandgrouse, whilst Morocco holds Desert Sparrow and Egypt, Sooty Falcon.
