Realenga de Agicampe, Huétor Tajar, Granada Province, Spain.

Strange Buzzard over the garden.
Possbile Long-legged Buzzard (Busardo Moro / Buteo rufinus).
I spent the day catching up with a few jobs in the garden and then spent a while in the hide but things were quiet and I only had the normal species including Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla), Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), Blue (Herrerillo Común / Parus caeruleus) and Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major), Common Chaffinch (Pinzón Vulgar / Fringilla coelebs), Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula), Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala) and a couple of fly over Siskins (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus).
Possbile Long-legged Buzzard (Busardo Moro / Buteo rufinus).
I decided to pack it in at around 14:30 and put the hide away but as I walked back up to the house I saw a Buzzard coming towards me so I popped up on to the terrace and took a few shot before it drifted more distantly off to the East, at the time I thought it looked pale but once it was on the PC it was even more apparent. 
Grey Wagtail (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea).
The bird looked like a Long-legged Buzzard (Busardo Moro / Buteo rufinus) to me but I am aware that the Gibraltar Buzzard Hybrids can make this species difficult to confirm and as I have no great experiance with the Hybrids I sent the pictures off to a guy (Javi Elorriaga) that does and await his help.
House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus) male.
Whilst in the garden I also had a male Desert Darter (Sympetrum sinaiticum) again as well as Clouded Yellow (Colias corcea) and Small White (Pieris rapae).
Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major).
House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus) female.

Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula).

Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula).
