We had a post in June 2013 about this species concerning a sighting near Trujillo which was of another individual (a subadult). In that post there is further information about the status of the species in Extremadura. The record described here from Monroy would be the fifth confirmed record in Extremadura, all of them in steppe areas (La Serena, Llanos de Cáceres-Trujillo, Cuatro Lugares), apart from one in Plasencia. The species has been recorded in January, May (2 records) and June (two records) and all pertain to immature birds.
We thank Ib Helles for his initiative in spreading the news and look forward to further collaboration in the future.
