Black Wheatear was one of my main targets in Morocco, but it wasn't until the third day of four that I finally found one. Driving along well off the beaten track, I espied a black dot on a ridge - these birds often take a prominent position. I chatted to the local farmer as I would need to cross his land to get the bird, but he had no problem with that - up I went. A bit of climb, but the views were superb. The birds - there was also a female that I had not spotted - never came particularly close to me except once, but I was able to grab a couple of nice shots as they chatted at me from further away. I had found a truly great little spot, with a Moussier's Redstart, a Black Redstart, several Thekla Lark, and a Great Grey Shrike that will be the subject of my next post.
