Huétor Fields, Granada Province.

A walk back from the Garage in Huétor Tajar to the house across the fields.

I dropped the car off for a service and decided to walk back to the house across the tracks and fields, along the road between the town and the railway bridge I started off with Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), 35x Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax), Stone Curlew (Alcaraván Común / Burhinus oedicnemus), Meadow Pipit (Bisbita Pratense / Anthus pratensis), Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata), White (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba) and Grey Wagtails (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea), Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Mistle Thrush (Zorzal Charlo / Turdus viscivorus), Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Collared Dove (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto), Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata) and Iberian / Azure-winged Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cyanus).

On the track along side the Arroyo Vilano I found Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus), Common Magpie (Urraca / Pica pica), Dartford (Curruca Rabilarga / Sylvia undata) and Cetti's Warblers (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti) and Skylark (Alondra Común / Alauda arvensis).
