Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

Back on the Patch.
Ebird List.

6x Common Cranes (Grulla Común / Grus grus).
I was tired after yesterdays drive but wanted to go and see what has been happening on the fields, I parked at my usual spot and walked the track between the Arroyo and the Lucerne fields, one of the first things I saw were 6x Common Cranes (Grulla Común / Grus grus) right at the far side of the fields near the Olives whch was a good record and the bigest flock to settle here so far.

After a few minutes I heard the birds calling and they had taken off as a tractor had flushed them and they flew off west towards Granada along the Genil Valley.
