Granada Airport and back, Granada Province.

Trip to collect a hire car.

After the third break down the ***bleeping*** car was left at the mechanics to be sorted out yet again. Garry one of our neighbours was kind enough to take me up to the airport to collect a hire car and on the way I picked up a few species.
On the fields along side the Autovia near Lachar I spotted a small flock of about 15 Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) and a perched Black-winged Kite (Elanio Común / Elanus caeruleus). Both Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo) and a Peregrine Falcon (Halcón Peregrino / Falco peregrinus) were also seen on the roadside fencing.
Other birds seen during the journey were Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulga / Falco tinnunculus), Jackdaw (Grajilla / Corvus monedula), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Stone-curlew (Alcaraván Común / Burhinus oedicnemus), Northern Lapwing (Avefria Europea / Vanellus vanellus), White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba), Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Common Magpie (Urraca / Pica pica), Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata), Collared Dove (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto), Linnet (Pardillo Común / Carduelis cannabina), Crested Lark (Cogujada Común / Galerida cristata) and Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor).
