Huétor Fields and travelling back to Shropshire in the UK.

Travelling back for Christmas and the New Year.

Jayne and I finished the packing and set off for Malaga Airport, as we crossed the fields I picked up House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), Little Owl (Mochuelo Europeo / Athene noctua), Northern Lapwing (Avefria Europea / Vanellus vanellus), Golden Plover (Chorlito Dorado Europeo / Pluvialis apricaria), Stone Curlew (Alcaraván Común / Burhinus oedicnemus), Collared Dove (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto), Western Cattle Egret (Garcilla Bueyera / Bubulcus ibis), Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulgar / Falco tinnunculus), White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula) and Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata). 
We had some lunch in Salinas and continued on down and dropped the car off at Parkingmar before catching our flight over to Birmingham.
The flight was on time and uneventful but due to Wolverhampton Wanderers home match against Liverpool being changed and now finishing just before we reached the town the trains and stations were a tad busy to say the least but Martin, Jayne's bother and his wfe Julia managed to find us and very kindly take us back to their house which was our base for the next two and a half weeks.
