Arrival in the Western Kingdom: 9 March
Arrived in Marrakech mid afternoon for the start of a Wise Birding tour to Southern Morocco. We hit the ground running, adding a large flock of Pallid Swift, 2 Little Swift and Spotless Starlings to the trip list at Marrakech-Menara Airport, before transferring to our hotel. Marrakech, Morocco's forth largest city and former capital, is a beautiful city, with low rise red buildings surrounded by red sandstone walls that give it the Monica the 'Red City'. Unfortunately we were too tired to walk around the souks, but this is just an excuse to come back someday. No photos today but all set for birding the High Atlas Mountains tomorrow.
