Realenga, Huétor Tajar, Granada Province.

A couple of hours in the garden.

Song Thrush (Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos).
After a bit of building work on the house in the morning I set the hide up on the lower terrace and spent a couple of hours seeing what came through the area. The birds included a flock of noisy Long-tailed Tits (Mito / Aegithalos caudatus) which did not come down for a drink but a couple hung around in the Quince tree and one gave me the time to swing the camera around. 
Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla).
Other species included Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala), Song Thrush (Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos), Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), a Wren (Chochin / Troglodytes troglodytes) which perched very nicely but was to close for me to focus, Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Iberian / Azure-winged Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cyanus), Common Chiffchaff (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita) and Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major).
Long-tailed Tits (Mito / Aegithalos caudatus).
On the rocks around the pool there were several sun bathing Perez's Frogs (Rana Común / Pelophylax perezi) and in the air Desert Darter (Sympetrum sinaiticum), Clouded Yellow (Colias Común / Colias corcea), Desert Orange-tip (Colotis evagore), Large (Pieris brassicae) and Small White (Pieris rapae).
