Larking about in Morocco… first pics

Howard, my Dad and I got back very late last night after a superb 8-day trip to Morocco: our first visit to the country certainly did not disappoint! A full trip report and lots more photos will follow ASAP, but in the meantime, here’s a quick gallery illustrating one of the birding highlights. We saw a grand total of 11 different lark species… or should that be twelve? (Clue: see Dutch Birding’s taxonomic recommendations re the last photo!)
