A Cattle Egret right at the start of the walk where the vegetation was more lush.There was a wonderfully fragrant flowering shrub every now and then along this path with a gorgeous scent. I wish I knew what it was!
And here is one of the great birds we found along there. A stunning male Moussier's Redstart!
We were very relieved to get to our lunch stop which had some much needed shade. Lunch as usual was a mixture of fish, tomatoes, red onion, cucumber and olives.
One of the birds we found while lunching was the African Magpie, a sub-species of our Magpie at home. The major difference being the blue patch at the back of the eye. You can just about see it in this photo.
You can see it better in this photo.
Another bird we found here was Serin with its lovely high pitched jingling song.
Here's a photo of the sub-species of the Southern Grey Shrike called algenensis which is only found on the coast here. It's darker than the more usual one. Apologies for the poor quality of photo, this was taken through my telescope with my point and shoot camera.
Another scorpion, this one much bigger than the one we discovered having lunch with us up in the Atlas mountains!
Another photo of the Greater Flamingo this time without the lovely evening light, but I liked the shapes they were making together!Here are my fellow birders doing our nightly log. This was the last evening of the trip and what a great trip it was.
