Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain

A walk along the Arroyo Vilano and the Lucerne Fields.
Ebird List.

Common Crane (Grulla Común / Grus grus).
The first thing I saw after getting out of the car was a large shape right at the end of the Lucerne fields which turned out to be an immature Common Crane (Grulla Común / Grus grus), I got better views further along the fields and later it flew further along the Arroyo to another Lucerne field.
