Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

A longer loop out to the Mesia Road than normal.
Ebird List.

Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea).
I parked at my usual spot and as I needed a good stretch of the legs I walked out to the far side of the Mesia road by going along the Southern side of the Arroyo Vilano and under the railway bridge and along the far side of the Arroyo and back again.
