Spain V - Doñana National Park

Small birds were much harder to take photos of as the area was so open like this.

I managed to shoot some of them.

Crested Larks (Kammuri-hibariカンムリヒバリ) - resident

Spanish Sparrows (Supein(Spain)-suzumeスペインスズメ) - resident
Both are females, which very much resemble the female of the House Sparrow.
I failed to take photos of males, which have a chestnut-coloured crown and nape.

Corn Buntings (Hata-hoojiroハタホオジロ) - resident
They were singing every 30 meters or so and probably one of the most sighted birds during our 2 daytrips.

Common Snipes (Tashigiタシギ) - wintering

Western Yellow Wagtails Motacilla flava iberiae 
(no Japanese name ニシツメナガセキレイ?) - summer birds

White Wagtails Motacilla alba alba? (Haku-sekireiハクセキレイ) - resident

Common Sandpiper (Isoshigiイソシギ) - resident
& Corn Bunting & House Sparrow (Ie-suzumeイエスズメ)

Common Sandpipers & House Sparrows - resident

a common view of swampy areas
Little Egrets (Kosagiコサギ), Great Egrets (Daisagiダイサギ), Grey Herons (Aosagiアオサギ), Purple Herons (Murasakisagiムラサキサギ), Western Cattle Egrets (Nishi-amasagiニシアマサギ), Eurasian Spoonbills (Herasagiヘラサギ), Purple Swamphens (Seikeiセイケイ), Glossy Ibis, White Storks were the most common in those habitat. We heard a Great Bittern (Sankanogiサンカノゴイ) booming!

That was about it for the day 1 in Doñana National Park with Vicent.
We counted more than 90 species, which I think was great.

a deer was watching us watching birds:)
