The Crane was seen again after my previous visit, so this was an early and quick sojourn back to JPR for a last ditch attempt.
Thwarted again, so had a quick drive around the reserve finding a roosting Black-crowned Night Heron in the reeds, in pretty low light, so I had to up the ISO considerably.

I played hide-and-seek with a skittish male Common Redstart until it eventually stayed on its perch long enough for a distant image.

There was a large noisy flock of Spanish Sparrows feeding in the reeds feeding on flowers that look like feather dusters

I had a walk around the baseball grounds, no birds of significance, but numbers of Mediterranean Pierrot's
