Huétor Fields, Granada Province.

A bit of birding on the way back from the supermarket.

I popped down to the supermarket in Huétor and on the way back I stopped at the ford over the Arroyo Vilano and sat there for around 25 minutes to see what appeared. Best bird by far was a Moustached Warbler (Carricerin Real / Acrocephalus melanopogon) which I had first seen back in December but not in between. Again the bird behaved as before, it kept its distance and only showed briefly.
At the same point I saw Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos) x3, Western Cattle Egret (Garcilla Bueyera / Bubulcus ibis) x5, Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus) x3, Northern Lapwing (Avefria Europea / Vanellus vanellus) x18, Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus) x1, Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata) x5, Crag Martin (Avión Roquero / Ptyonoprogne rupestris) x4, Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti) x1, Common Chiffchaff (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita) x12, Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla) x1, Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala) x2, Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula) x1, Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica) x1, Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros) x2, Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata) x2, White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba) x2, Meadow Pipit (Bisbita Pratense / Anthus pratensis) x1, Water Pipit (Bisbita Alpino / Anthus spinoletta) x1 and Linnet (Pardillo Común / Carduelis cannabina) x5.
