Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

A short walk around the Lucerne fields again.
 
Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata) Female.
I parked and walked along the track between the Lucerne and the Arroyo, as I walked I had Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata), Spanish (Yellow) Wagtail (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae), Zitting Cisticola (Buitrón / Cisticola juncidis), Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala), Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata), Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops), Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki) and good numbers of Corn Buntings (Triguero / Emberiza calandra).
Common Stonechat (Tarabilla Común / Saxicola torquata) Female.
I took the track down to the road bridge finding Little Ringed Plover (Chorlitejo Chico / Charadrius dubius), Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus), Meadow Pipit (Bisbita Pratense / Anthus pratensis), House Martin (Avión Común / Delichon urbica), Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti) and Little Owl (Mochuelo Europeo / Athene noctua).
Possible hybrid between Spanish (Gorrión Moruno / Passer hispaniolensis) and House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus).
On the fence along side the Lucerne fields I found a large flock of around 60 Tree Sparrows (Gorrión Molinero / Passer montanus) and at least three birds which look like Hybrids between Spanish (Gorrión Moruno / Passer hispaniolensis) and House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus).
