Seen flying over mountain rocks and grasslands of south-eastern Spain.
No interactions present.
Thanks for the suggestion and info - I think I'm inclined to agree - I did browse extensively through a list of Spanish birds and none seem anywhere near as "exotic" looking as this! I did also briefly spot a "lost parrot" sign in Spanish a few dozen kms down the road from where it was spotted, so who knows, it might have been that...
What's even more bizarre is within about a mile of sighting the above bird, I also spotted another bird a few days earlier whilst driving which was large, white and had pink edged wings, which I can only imagine must have been a flamingo? What a strange place this is! Some lovely bee-eaters around too.
