Pinos Genil and the Outskirts of Granda City, Granada Province.

A really nice evening with three good friends.

Glow Worm possibly (Nyctophila reichii).
Jayne and I met Beatriz, Juan and Chika and went up to Pinos Genil where we sat by the river at Restaurante Mesón Casa Guillermo and had a few drinks and some excellent food. Whilst there I noticed White (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba) and Grey Wagtail (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), House Martin (Avión Común / Delichon urbica), Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris) and Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis).
We sat chatting for quite a while then walked back to the car and headed back to our car near Juan's where we went for a very short walk to a spot in a built up area. For the last few nights there had been a single Glow Worm possibly (Nyctophila reichii) but when we got there there were three nice females glowing low down on a wall. Very nice find by Juan and Beatriz as they are extremely rare this far south on the peninsular.
