Undisclosed Site, Granada Province.

No sign of the Cream-coloured Coursers.

Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo) sat on a Rabbit.
I dropped Jayne in the Sierra Nevada Shopping centre and then went out to the site for the Cream-coloured Coursers (corredor Sahariano / Cursorius cursor) but after just over 3 hour searching I had not found them. All the young birds were now flying so they may well still be in the area but lying low.
Tawny Pipit (Bisbita campestre / Anthus campestris).
I did however see Black-bellied Sandgrouse (Ganga Ortega / Pterocles orientalis), Tawny Pipit (Bisbita campestre / Anthus campestris), Crested (Cogujada / Galerida cristata) and Short-toed Larks (Terrera Común / Calandrella brachydactyla), Woodchat (Alcaudón Común / Lanius senator) and Iberian / Southern Grey Shrike (Alcaudón Real Meridional / Lanius meridionalis), Booted Eagle (Aguililla Calzada / Hieraaetus pennatus), Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo), Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulgar /
Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops).
 Falco tinnunculus), Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops), immature Black-eared Wheatear (Collalba Rubia / Oenanthe hispanica), Common Magpie (Urraca / Pica pica), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Collared (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto) and Turtle Dove (Tórtola Europea / Streptopelia turtur) and Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula) as well as several Scarce (Chupaleches / Iphiclides podalirius feisthameli) and Common Swallowtail (Papilio machaon), Bath White (Blanqiverdosa / Pontia daplidice) and Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui).

I then went and met Jayne in the Shopping centre where we had a very nice Italian meal before continuing the shopping and the heading home.
