Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

Out on the patch looking for Migrants.
Ebird List.

Common Redstart (Colirroja Real / Phoenicurus phoenicurus) female.
I did the usual walk around the Lucerne Fields and headed out towards the Poplar Plantation but at the crossroad I turned towards Huétor and walked right to the town and then came back along the Dog S**T track to the railway and then finished off the walk by coming along the main Montefrio Road.
Black-winged Kite (Elanio Común / Elanus caeruleus).
Along the first part of the walk I saw a Blue-rock Thrush (Roquero Solitario / Monticola solitarius), female Common Redstart (Colirroja Real / Phoenicurus phoenicurus), Little Owl (Mochuelo Europeo / Athene noctua), Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), Iberian  Magpie (Rabilargo / Cyanopica cooki), Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea), Dartford Warbler (Curruca Rabilarga / Sylvia undata) and Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti). 
Garden Warbler (Curruca Mosquitera / Sylvia borin).
Along the road to town I added a flyby Black-winged Kite (Elanio Común / Elanus caeruleus), Green Sandpiper (Andarrios Grande / Tringa ochropus), Hoopoe (Abubilla / Upupa epops), Garden Warbler (Curruca Mosquitera / Sylvia borin) and Tree Sparrow (Gorrión Molinero / Passer montanus).
Stone Curlew (Alcaraván Común / Burhinus oedicnemus).
As I walked up Dog S**T track carfully I had nice views of good numbers of
Stone Curlews (Alcaraván Común / Burhinus oedicnemus) getting on for 400 birds, Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax), Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica) and 2x Northern Lapwings (Avefria Europea / Vanellus vanellus).
