This is the book that gives you the latest information on where to find birds such as Egyptian Nightjar, Desert Warbler, Scrub Warbler, Fulvous Babbler and many more in much more detail than you can find anywhere else. You really shouldn’t go to the deserts of Morocco without it.

“For the birder visiting the traditional desert sites, this is the definitive guide with no other guidebook or information source coming close to offering such detailed maps and handy hints on where to find the species that you want to see.”                                                                                                                                                  Richard Bonser, (click here for full review)

Dave Gosney writes:

On 15th April 2009, I was birding at Oukaimeden in Morocco’s Atlas mountains when I met up with Dominic Mitchell and a group of friends who had just arrived in the country and were about to visit the desert areas. Since I’d just been to the places they were aiming for, I was able to give them up-to-date directions and sketch maps for exactly where to find species such as Scrub Warbler, Egyptian Nightjar, Saharan Olivaceous Warbler, Desert Sparrow, Dupont’s Lark, Mourning Wheatear and Crowned Sandgrouse.  Dominic later got in touch to say that my advice had been spot-on and that they’d managed to find all the species they’d wanted to see. The aim of this book is to give you that very same advantage for your next trip to Morocco.
