STATUS
Winter visitor. 

ABUNDANCE
Scarce.

HABITAT
Takes to a great variety of habitat with good cover and soft soil for probing in. Normally turns up on rivers and streams with riparian woodland or thickets of Oleander, bramble and Tamujo; also in scrubland, pastureland, Sweet-Chestnut woods, Cork-Oak woods, dehesas, pinewoods, Eucalyptus woods and Cistus scrub. May even be flushed from wayside puddles along little transited roads and paths.

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Seen above all from November to March. 

DISTRIBUTION
Only a few records each year and the same sites tend to repeat annually. Most records come from Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, but it probably also winters in low numbers in Seville, C贸rdoba and Ja茅n.

COMMENTS
This is a well-camouflaged, skulking and nocturnal species so numbers might well be underestimated. It is scarce but probably not as rare as the few records might suggest.
