A birding visit by GOMAC member Benoît Maire and 7 other birders to Oualidia region proved productive with the group managed to see a total of 70 different species including some rare birds:
- An American Golden Plover (Pluvialis dominica) was seen and photographed at Zemamra some 27 Km inland from Oualidia (coordinates: 32.6306202, -8.7852207). This would be the 5th Moroccan record for the species if accepted by the MRBC.
- A possible Cinnamon Teal (Anas cyanoptera) was seen and photographed at Oualidia. Comments welcome! This would be the first record for Morocco if accepted by the MRBC.
