Padul, Granada Province.

Hot and sticky along the smelly channel.

I popped in to Padul again to see if any of the Spotted Crakes (Polluela Pintoja / Porzana porzana) were still around and after about 20 minutes I found just a single secritive bird which ran across a gap in the reeds a couple of time so quickly I did not get the camera on it.
Other species seen there were Water Rail (Rascón Europeo / Rallus aquaticus), Water Pipit (Bisbita Alpino / Anthus spinoletta), Reed (Carricero Común / Acrocephalus scrpaceus), Sardinian (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala) and Cetti's Warblers (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus), Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), House Martin (Avión Común / Delichon urbica), Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata) and Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra).
