Realenga de Agicampe, Huétor Tajar, Granada Province.

An hour in the hide by the pool.

Hawfinch (Picogordo / Coccotraustes coccotrauetes).
After filling the feeders I set the hide up and waited to see what arrived. There were several Siskins (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus) still knocking about including at least three ♂ and even more ♀, ♂ Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Song Thrush (Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos), ♂♀ Blackbird
Hawfinch (Picogordo / Coccotraustes coccotrauetes).
(Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), ♂♀ House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), ♂♀ Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla), ♂♀ Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala), a couple of singing Short-toed Treecreepers (Agateador Común / Certhia brachydactyla) in the olives, Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula), Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major) and a beast of a Hawfinch (Picogordo / Coccotraustes coccotrauetes) dropped straight into the feeder scattering everything. It sat there for a while and flew straight out again not giving a chance for a clear shot.
