Birds out on the patch.
Second Municipal Lockdown Day 19.
|Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata).|
I started off by heading down on to the fields and parked in the usual place and did the walk along the Arroyo taking the Northern side at the far end.
|Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax).|
The Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) x37 were on the fields and down on the Arroyo Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti), Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus), Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops), Iberian Magpie
(Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki) and a Little Owl
(Mochuelo Europeo / Athene noctua) which was sat in a Fig tree on the opposite bank.
|Iberian Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki).|
Over the road I followed the Arroyo adding Song Thrush
(Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos), Woodpigeon
(Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Reed Buntings
(Escribano Palustre / Emberiza schoeniclus) x1M and 2xF and a couple of Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica).
I turned around and started to walk back, on a fallow field that's covered in weeds I had a long branch of a dead tree and perched on it were 5 birds, 1x Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Linnet (Pardillo Común / Carduelis cannabina), 1x Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris), 1x Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus) and Spanish Sparrow (Gorrión Moruno / Passer hispaniolensis), quite a sight and a shame it was too far away for a shot.
|Woodpigeons (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus) in the poplars.|
As I passed the Reed beds I watched a very smart male Reed Bunting which was pulling apart the seed head on a Reed Mace
|Reed Bunting (Escribano Palustre / Emberiza schoeniclus) Male.|
(Typha latifolia) and was covered in the fluff.
As I reached the bridge again I had a group of migrating Hirundines moving East and it included at least 8x House Martins (Avión Común / Delichon urbica) and 4 Barn Swallows
|Linnet (Pardillo Común / Carduelis cannabina).|
(Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica).
Further along the track before I reached the car I had Grey Wagtail (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea), Tree Sparrow (Gorrión Molinero / Passer montanus), Common Starlings (Estornino Pinto / Sturnus vulgaris), Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra) and Zitting Cisticola (Buitrón / Cisticola juncidis).
