Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

Morning stroll around the patch.
Second Municipal Lockdown Day 16.
 
Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica) male.
I started the walk at around 09.30, highlights around the Lucerne fields were 37 Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax), a Water Pipit (Bisbita Alpino / Anthus spinoletta), Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus) x2, Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops), Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki) x70+, almost a 100 Skylarks (Alondra Común / Alauda arvensis), Tree Sparrows (Gorrión Molinero / Passer montanus) and a Great Spotted Woodpecker (Pico Picapinos / Dendrocopos major).

Instead of walking down to the Poplar Plantations I stayed along side the Arroyo and crossed the road and again followed it along the Northern bank, along here I added
Water Rail (Rascón Europeo / Rallus aquaticus), Spanish Sparrow (Gorrión Moruno / Passer hispaniolensis), Reed Bunting (Escribano Palustre / Emberiza schoeniclus) and at least 5 Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica) but possibly up to 7 birds.
