Dave Gosney is busily re-mastering and updating all his ‘Finding birds in… series probably by popular demand as the books have always beed spot on and very transportable and the videos always informative, well presented and a delight to watch when preparing for a trip or deciding where your next overseas adventure will be.
Finding Birds in Morocco: The Deserts 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.
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.
…well you can’t say fairer than that, and I can certainly endorse this as my experience of the series is just the same – the birds are just where Dave says!
