Huétor Tajar, Granada Province.

Another couple of hours in the garden hide.

Siskin (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus) ♂.
I sat down on the lower terrace in the hide for a couple of hours and I was quite pleased with the results particularly when 8 Siskins (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus) dropped in for a drink, the group was made up of 5♂♂ and 3♀♀.
