This is an updated (2018) version of the 2011 book which supplements the title ‘Finding Birds in Morocco; coasts and mountains’, covering all the best sites in the rest of Morocco, north of Goulimine.

This latest version provides many updates, including new and improved maps,  giving the latest information on how to find birds like Egyptian Nightjar, Maghreb Wheatear, Thick-billed Lark, Tristram’s Warbler, Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Lanner Falcon, Desert Warbler etc, based largely on Dave’s almost annual visits to Morocco since the last book was published.

In 2011 Dave Gosney wrote:

‘‘This is the book for anyone seeking the key species of Morocco’s deserts, with descriptions and GPS co-ordinates of reliable sites for species such as Scrub Warbler, Egyptian Nightjar, Mourning (Maghreb) Wheatear, Crowned Sandgrouse, Pharaoh Eagle Owl etc.”
