Madrid 28/4/16

Back again on a late night-stop allowing plenty of time this morning to venture out into the open green areas on the SW side of Madrid. I've never been here in late April before so I was hoping for a different mix of species from what I've encountered before. This was immediately evident this morning when laying in bed I could here a Western Bonelli's Warbler singing outside, but the most unexpected were small flocks of Bee-Eaters.

Totals for the morning are:
Western Bonelli's Warbler - 5
Spotless Starling - 100+
Serin - 25
Tree Sparrow - 7
Melodious Warbler - 3
Short-toed Treecreeper - 2
Pied Flycatcher - 1 male
Zitting Cisticola - 2
Whinchat - 6
Wheatear - 1
Crested Lark - 4
Black Redstart - 3
European Bee-Eater - 11 (3 flocks)
Garden Warbler - 1
Red-rumped Swallow - 3
Common Redstart - 1
Black Kite - 4

Green-striped White - 5
Clouded Yellow sp. - 1

 two European Bee-Eaters
either a Green-striped White or some form of Dappled White.....
