Azemmour Birding Number Two

Yesterday afternoon I headed up into the fields above the river to the west of the medina towards the beach.

Black-winged Stilt
Black-winged Stilt (Himantopus himantopus)

A very common bird for me but first time seen in Morocco for me.

Black Redstart
Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros)

This is a female. Again, first time for me seen in Morocco.

Common Linnet
Common Linnet (Linaria cannabina)

Seen before in Oualidia but this photo is just a little bit better. Not by much.

European Serin
European Serin (Serinus serinus)

Common Blackbird
Common Blackbird (Turdus merula)

Black-headed Gull  - summer plumage
Black-headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus)

Summer plumage for the Black-headed Gull.
