A rarity / escapee on the patch and some commer stuff around the garden pool.
|Sparrowhawk (Gavilán Común / Accipiter nisus).|
After clarifying things about where we can and cannot go with a guy from the Guardia I went for a walk down on the fields and as I got out of the car and I was sorting out my kit I became aware of a loud call coming from the other side of the Arroyo just up from the bar opposite and straight away I knew I knew the call but it took me a few moments to realize I was listening to a singing Common / Garden Bulbul (Bulbul Naranjero / Pycnonotus barbatus). I waited and then the bird flew up stream, I followed getting a couple of brief flight views as it disappeared in to trees on its way calling several more time before I lost it.
|Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala).|
Happy with the ID but wanted a photo to see if there were any signs of captivity so thought I would return during the evening to try again.
|Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula).|
|Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros).|
|Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula).|
|Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major).|
Later in the afternoon I went back down on to the fields but did not hear or see any sign of the Bulbul so I went for another walk along the Arroyo but the only new bird of the walk were 5 Northern Lapwings (Avefria Europea / Vanellus vanellus) passing over.
