Tour to Morocco 2013 (Moulay Bou Selham)

Our first location in Morocco was Merja Zerga (also named Lagune de Moulay Bou Selham). This is a tidal lagoon on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. Our main target was the Marsh Owl (Asio capensis). In Dutch ‘Afrikaanse velduil’. It might be the first and last time we saw this specie. The loss of its habitat through development and agricultural intensification is a big threat. Besides the Marsh Owl we saw other species like the Black-winged Kite (Elanus caeruleus) , Mediterranean tree frog  (Hyla meridionalis), Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus), different gecko species, and many more.

We also had to get used to the garbage next to the road and in the woods. The smell of burned plastic was also a typical smell.
