Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province, Spain.

After spending the morning pruning trees and shrubs above the pool which actually helped with the light on the righthand side of the pool I put the hide out and sat in there for a couple of hours.

All went well but had to have a laugh when a guy from up the road walked past on the road singing whilst taking a Goat and a Turkey for a walk on leads.
Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis).

During the couple of hours the 1st winter Grey Wagtail (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea) was there and either feeding or preeing along with several nervous Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula) and masses of House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus).

Also around but not getting infront of the camera were Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major), Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris), Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala) and Collared Dove (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto).
House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus) male.

Over head I could hear Iberian  Magpies (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki) almost constantly but as always they did not come down and a passing pair of Raven (Cuervo / Corvus corax) calling loudly.
