It was Sunday 20th of October and local ornithologist David Cuenca had come across a Little Bunting Emberiza pusilla in the park at La Linea (Parque Princessa Sofia). It is a rare species for Spain and would normally migrate to Asia. So it drew a small number of excited local birders to enjoy watching it. It gave good views as it scurried through the grass feeding on seeds, building up its reserves ready to carry on its long journey.
