STATUS
Winter visitor and migrant, with some breeders that are perhaps sedentar

ABUNDANCE
Very rare in summer with a handful of probable or certain breeding records (2-5 pairs). Abundant in winter.

HABITAT
All types of woods and copses, especially woodland edges and hedgerows. Breeds in dense, cooler woodland.

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Most of the wintering birds from elsewhere in Europe arrive from late October to November and then leave Sierra Morena in March. 

DISTRIBUTION
As a winter visitor it is well distributed throughout. The only certain breeding records involve Cork-Oak woods of Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, and pinewoods in Tentudía (Badajoz) very close to northern Huelva. Possible pairs also in other wooded areas of Huelva and Jaén.
