Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

A walk along the Lucerne fields.
 
Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra).
I parked by the Arroyo and walked along the side of the Lucerne fields where I found at least 6 male and 3 female Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) but there were probably more as they were difficult to see as the Lucerne was quite tall.
As I walked along the track I also saw Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra), Meadow Pipit (Bisbita Pratense / Anthus pratensis), Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata), Red-rumped (Golondrina Dáurica / Hirundo daurica) and Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), House (Avión Común / Delichon urbica) and Crag Martin (Avión Roquero / Ptyonoprogne rupestris), Reed Bunting (Escribano Palustre / Emberiza schoeniclus), Sardinian (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala) and Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti), Black Redstart (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica), Crested (Cogujada / Galerida cristata) and Skylark (Alondra Común / Alauda arvensis), Linnet (Pardillo Común / Carduelis cannabina), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Grey (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea), White (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba) and Spanish (Yellow) Wagtail (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae), Western Cattle Egret (Garcilla Bueyera / Bubulcus ibis), Spotless Starling (Estornino Negro / Sturnus unicolor), Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus), Little Ringed Plover (Chorlitejo Chico / Charadrius dubius), Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulgar / Falco tinnunculus) and Common Chiffchaff (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita).
