Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

Common / Garden Bulbul (Bulbul Naranjero / Pycnonotus barbatus).

A new species for the Province.

Common / Garden Bulbul (Bulbul Naranjero / Pycnonotus barbatus).
I first heard and got really bad views of this bird back on the 1st November 2020 in the same location, it was singing loudly from the cover of a fig tree which still had it leaves and then flew up the Arroyo Vilano stopping to sing a couple more times but in the end I lost it.

At around 10.00 this morning (09/12/2020) I was walking back to my car after getting a call from a guy in the Medio Ambiente who wanted to see the local Little Bustard (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) flock.

Just before I reached the car I heard the Bulbul again singing from a tree in the same group of trees but this time it flew up and saw off a couple of
Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula) but it gave me time to get a few shots rattled off.
