Loja town centre, Granada Province.

First of the summer visitors.

I had parked in the sports centre car park where Jayne had gone to her Tai Chi class and decided to have a stroll through the town centre. On the way up to the Historical Centre I noted three Hirundines flying around and quickly identified them as House Martins (Avión Común / Delichon urbica). The birds were visiting some of the old nests on the apartment blocks along the main street. By the time I was walking back it was starting to get dark and the White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla Alba) roost in the trees around the small play area had started to grow quite large and by the time it was fully dark there were at least 500 birds in the trees.
