My Mauritania list (304)


I arrived in Mauritania in September 2016. I am birding in free time. Getting around the city and country is a bigger issue than in other countries I have worked in. Despite this the list developed well.

Since this list was downloaded from e-bird I have added six more species:

Village weaver at Tigoumatine
Arctic skua south of the fishing port, Nouakcohtt
Montagu's harrier south of the old wharf, Nouakchott
Neumann's starling at Achrem Inselberg, Tagant
Tawny eagle at Boutilimit
Short-eared owl at North Nouakchott waste water site
