STATUS
Summer visitor and migrant with some wintering birds. 

ABUNDANCE
Common in the western half, fading out towards the east.

HABITAT
This species takes to a wide range of open areas, including pastureland and grassland, cropland, thinned out dehesas, open valleys, etc. It is fairly adaptable, however, and also breeds in denser woods as long as there are more open hunting grounds nearby.

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Gets back in February and the last leave in September (occasionally in October). Spring passage peaks in March, and autumn passage in August and early September. 

DISTRIBUTION
In Huelva and Seville locally abundant and well distributed. Scarcer in C贸rdoba while in Ja茅n it can be classed as a rare breeder. On passage could turn up equally in the four provinces and occasionally overwinters in livestock-rich areas.

COMMENTS
Many of the local birds are non breeders that flock in food-rich areas and form roosts in summer. A good example is the open grassland of Guadalcanal.
