Finally arrived in Anza

After 16 hours of travel from Bergen via Oslo to Marrakesh and the two hours drive over the High Atlas to Agadir we finally arrived in Anza, Agadir. Here we could enjoy thousands of gulls. We arrived 30 minutes before sunset and could see the huge swarms of gulls over the fishing port. When we arrived in Anza we estimated the number to be between 10.000 - 15.000 gulls, impressive! We put up the telescopes and it did not take long before we had the first ringed Lesser Black-backed gull (Larus fuscus). It was a white ring probably ringed in France. After it became to dark and we had to drive back to Agadir. Now we are really looking forward what tomorrow can bring.
