Hacho, Loja, Granada Province Spain.

After the rain. 

Firecrest (Reyezuelo Listado / Regulus ignicapillus).
The morning was wet and windy so I stayed in the house and caught up with a few bits but later in the afternoon I went just up the road to look for another puddle on the Northern side of Hacho.
Firecrest (Reyezuelo Listado / Regulus ignicapillus).
I found a nice looking puddle but the birds were just not wanting a drink, however in the area I saw and heard Common Crossbill (Piquituerto Común / Loxia curvirostra), Common Chaffinch (Pinzón Vulgar / Fringilla coelebs), Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), Red-legged Partridge (Perdiz Roja / Alectoris rufa), Rock Bunting (Escribano Montesino / Emberiza cia), Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki), Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala), Song Thrush (Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula) and Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulgar / Falco tinnunculus). 
Firecrest (Reyezuelo Listado / Regulus ignicapillus).
I started to drive back down the track and then home but as I passed some Oaks I could hear and then saw at least 3 feeding
Firecrests (Reyezuelo Listado / Regulus ignicapillus) which showed quite well.
Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops).
I left the track and took the road home flushing up loads of finches from the road side and then three
Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops) came up and one sat for a while in an Olive tree nicely.
