Realenga de Agicampe and Huetor Fields, Granada Province.

First of the winter birds atlas days.

This was the first days atlas work for the 2010 /11 winter period, this is an on going survey and can take up as little as four hours over the 3 month duration. Details of the survey can be found at I do three itineraries and this take just over six hours plus the travelling but I find it makes you look at and enjoy all the birds, even the very common one.
