Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

A quick wet visit to the fields.
 
I drove down to the fields to have a walk but when I got there the heavens opened so I just drove along the Arroyo top and scanned the Lucerne flields seeing the wintering Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) which were hunkered down avoiding the rain and wind as best as they could, 25 in total.
There were also 3 Western Cattle Egrets (Garcilla Bueyera / Bubulcus ibis), a Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea), Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops), Meadow Pipit (Bisbita Pratense / Anthus pratensis), White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata), Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra), Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata), Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros) and Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki).
The rain just kept getting worse so I went home and gave up on the idea of a walk, I did try later ut with the same results.
