Rio Vilano, Huétor Fields Granada Province.

Down at the river side building supply yard.

Red-rumped Swallows (Golondrina Dáurica / Hirudo daurica).
I spent just 10 minutes parked along side a puddle just off the rio where House Martins (Avión Común / Delichon urbica), Barn (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica) and Red-rumped Swallows (Golondrina Dáurica / Hirudo daurica) were coming down to collect mud for their nests.
