Undisclosed site, Granada Province.

A checkup on the Spanish Lifers.

Cream-coloured Coursers (corredor Sahariano / Cursorius cursor).
Jayne and I met our friend Juan Pérez Contreras at a spot in the countryside where we were trying to find and confirm numbers of the recently discovered Cream-coloured Coursers (corredor Sahariano / Cursorius cursor), by the time we were leaving we had seen 3 adults.
