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 (Spatula cyanoptera) was seen and photographed at Oualidia. Comments welcome! This would be the first record for Morocco if accepted by the MRBC.
The Cinnamon Teal accepted by the MRBC in its latest report (number 23).
