Arriving in Southern Spain

We made great time getting down to Jerez on Friday evening but delays by the hire car agents meant that hoped for late evening birding was out as we headed off to our rustic hacienda accommodation at Alijar near Sanlucar.

Somehow these dodgy characters were allowed into the country!

A look around the hacienda in the night produced a calling Scop's Owl, seen in the lamplight on the roofs and these nocturnal beasties.
