Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

A quick walk along the Arroyo.
Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra).
I dropped down to the Arroyo for my walk, the biggest change was that the Arroyo was no longer flowing. I parked and walked the Northern side of the Arroyo seeing just 2 female Little Bustard (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax) but guessing there may have been more birds hiding.
Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra).

Other species included
Corn Bunting (Triguero / Emberiza calandra), Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata), loads of House Martins (Avión Común / Delichon urbica), Barn Swallows (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica) and high up in the flock a single Common Swift (Vencejo Común / Apus apus).
Water Pipit (Bisbita Alpino / Anthus spinoletta).

Once I crossed the road and checked the pools that remained seeing Reed Bunting (Escribano Palustre / Emberiza schoeniclus), Little Ringed Plover (Chorlitejo Chico / Charadrius dubius), Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus), Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti), Water Pipit (Bisbita Alpino / Anthus spinoletta), Spanish (Yellow) Wagtail (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae) and Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki).
Spanish (Yellow) Wagtail (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae).
Spanish (Yellow) Wagtail (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae).
As I walked there were quite a few Clouded Yellows (Colias corcea), Small White (Pieris rapae) and a male Vagrant Emperor (Anax ephippiger).
