Last month we made a shortish trip to Morocco. After landing in Marrakesh we travelled east close to the border with Algeria. This gave us an opportunity to spend a day in the Sahara where the bird life is adapted to Desert - Desert Sparrow, Desert Warbler, Desert Wheatear. You get the picture. Later we travelled west, across the whole breadth of the country to Agadir. There we found the highlight of the trip - the Northern Bald Ibis (pictured). Once widespread through much of Europe, hence alternative name of Waldrapp, it became confined to a small area around Agadir. Conservation efforts in Morocco and elsewhere have brought it back from the brink. It is merely "Endangered" now. This one is an adult walking though the scrub and feeding. Much of the food comprise snails.
