Atlas Flycatcher arrival dates

Hi all,
Hoping to visit Morocco next April and wondering when Atlas Flycatcher arrives on its breeding grounds in the middle Atlas. I know it is during April but how late?
Thanks
James

I saw one at Azrou on 21st April last year, if that helps. They're not common at that time though.

They arrive in the 4th week of April. Check observation.org (I filtered April and Ifrane region only, you can change that if you want).

Andrew is right; they are not common at this time. Compare the reported numbers between April and May.

Thanks both. Not common is not necessarily a disaster. As long as there are some!
