Huétor Tajar, Granada Province, Spain.

A quiet afternoon walk.
Second Municipal Lock down Day 27.
 
Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulgar / Falco tinnunculus).
I parked at the mid point again as the crossing was to muddy to try, the Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) were on the same fields but spread out more than usual, they were sharing the lucerne field with a Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea), Skylarks (Alondra Común / Alauda arvensis), Linnet (Pardillo Común / Carduelis cannabina) and Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki).
Meadow Pipit (Bisbita Pratense / Anthus pratensis).
I Walked along the Arroyo finding Meadow (Bisbita Pratense / Anthus pratensis) and Water Pipits (Bisbita Alpino / Anthus spinoletta), Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica), White (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba) and Grey Wagtails (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea), Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus) and Reed Bunting (Escribano Palustre / Emberiza schoeniclus).
White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba).
I drove back around towards the house picking up more White Wagtails and Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata) on the Asparagus fields.
Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata).
