Huétor Fields, Granada Province, Spain.

Checking the Curlew Fields.
Ebird List.

Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax).
I parked in one of the gateways to the fields and scanned the stripes of crops and fallow areas and counted 23 Little Bustards (Sisón Común / Tetrax tetrax), getting on for 200 Stone Curlews (Alcaraván Común / Burhinus oedicnemus), along with Western Cattle Egret (Garcilla Bueyera / Bubulcus ibis) and Little Owl (Mochuelo Europeo / Athene noctua).

I also did a walk along the Dog S**T Track wher I found that there were actually 26 Little Bustards but most surprising was the number of Black Redstarts (Colirrojo Tizón / Phoenicurus ochruros), at one point I could count 19 all feeding along the field edges.
