Huétor Fields, Granada Province.

A whizz around the local patch.

Sedge Warbler (Carricerin Común / Acrocephalus schoenobaenus).
I started down on the Rio Vilano and then went out on to the middle fields on my way down to the mechanics, along the Rio I checked on the young Common Moorhens (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus) and found the 4 chicks still doing nicely. In the same area I heard and had bad views of my first Sedge Warbler (Carricerin Común / Acrocephalus schoenobaenus) of the year, Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops), Iberian / Azure-winged Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cyanus), Common Chiffchaff (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita), a pair of Little Ringed Plovers (Chorlitejo Chico / Charadrius dubius), Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus),Common Chaffinch (Pinzón Vulgar / Fringilla coelebs), Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), Collared Dove (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto), Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla), several Yellow Wagtails (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae), White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba), Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Barn Swallows (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), a female Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica) and a zitting Zitting Cisticola (Buitrón / Cisticola juncidis).
