Huétor Fields, Granada

Down on the fields yet again.
Second Municipal Lockdown Day 18.
 
Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica).
I parked in the usual spot and walked down to the railway line along the Arroyo Vilano, the species were as usual with 37 Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) still showing well on the Lucerne fields along with 100+ Linnet (Pardillo Común / Carduelis cannabina) and a big flock of Skylarks (Alondra Común / Alauda arvensis).

Along the far end of the Arroyo I walked the southern bank seeing several
Bluethroats (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica) so I again sat on the soggy vegetation and waited to see what appeared. The only Bluethroat that came in was the female but she remained difficult and only came out into the open a couple of times.
