Home near Huétor Tajar, Granada Province, Spain.
Getting the house back in shape.
Ready for some birding.
Yesterday I got one of my favourate places sorted, the terrace where I have masses of memories. So it was good to spend some time up there birding but today it was back to work as the bottom room and lower terrace were swamped by weeds and Perriwinkle. Some shots of the upper terrace and the temp.
The Ikea Corner.
Later in the day I went for a walk around the loop of Huétor Tajar and to get my steps in a short spur off up the Loja road. On the way round I had Common Swift (Vencejo Común / Apus apus), Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), Jackdaw (Grajilla / Corvus monedula) 200+, the escaped collection Barnical Goose (Barnacla Cariblanca / Branta leucopsis), other feral Geese and Ducks, House Martin (Avión Común / Delichon urbica) and Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica).
Many a good meal been had here.
Along the Loja road amongst the Asparagus fields I heard a Stone Curlew (Alcaraván Común / Burhinus oedicnemus) and watched a hawking Red-necked Nightjar (Chotacabras Cuellirrojo / Caprimulgus ruficollis) in the very last of the light as I sat on a bench.
