STATUS
Winter visitor, though seems to be sedentary in some areas. 

ABUNDANCE
Uncommon in general. Scarce in summer.

HABITAT
Farmland, dehesas and pastureland with livestock, rivers and reservoirs. Forms winter roosts in pinewoods, riverside copses and even in urban parks (e.g. in Cazalla de la Sierra).

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Numbers peak from October to March, though seen all year round. 

DISTRIBUTION
Spread more or less evenly throughout. In a large part of Córdoba and Jaén, however, confined to the southern areas of campiña.

COMMENTS
Birds in breeding plumage have been detected in some heron colonies (Reservoirs of José Torán, Salto de El Carpio and Aracena) but with no signs of breeding behaviour. Breeding in low numbers cannot be ruled out, however.
