El Temple, Granada Province, Spain.

Good Numbers of Great-spotted Cuckoos out in the Pines and Almonds.
 
Great Spotted Cuckoo (Crialo Europeo / Clamator gladarius).

During a days birding out on the El Temple area I saw around 20 noisy Great Spotted Cuckoos (Crialo Europeo / Clamator gladarius), these stunning birds are early arrivals that liven up the Pine and Almond groves with there constant rattling calls.

Most of the birds appeared to already be paired off and were already annoying the local Common Magpie (Urraca / Pica pica) population.
