STATUS
Migrant and summer breeder. 

ABUNDANCE
This is one of the rarest local birds, only one definite breeding pair remaining plus another three possible territories. Scarce on passage.

HABITAT
Breeds on cliffs and canyons. On passage seen in flight and some birds land to feed in open areas (pastureland, dehesas, pseudosteppe).

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Migrant records peak in March-April and August-September. The territorial birds remain between both migratory periods. 

DISTRIBUTION
The only remaining pair breeds in Parque Natural Sierra Norte de Seville. Very close to the southern border of Sierra Morena Cordobesa, but outside our study area, there is a another pair that often feeds in the dehesas of Espiel and Villanueva del Rey. On passage could be seen anywhere.

COMMENTS
There are records of adult birds in the breeding season (possibly holding territory) in Hornachuelos, Sierra Morena Sevillana, western Huelva and Sierra Morena de Jaén.
