Indeed, during the January winter bird count two Lesser Flamingos were counted (David Bigas) so both could be still present around.

(1) Zaragoza . One bird was found on 24.2 on the N edge of the Gallocanta lagoon, Zaragoza/Teruel, near the Information center, near Pico del Hacha . As explained in Spanish by the authors (Jose Angel Sanchez Gonzalez y miembr@s de la Asociacion Amigos de Gallocanta):

Se mueve con el grupo mas cercano a la Oficina de Turismo de Gallocanta, el Pico del Hacha. Ocupa siempre zonas exteriores de dicho grupo, que cuenta con entre 500 y 10000 ejemplares de grus grus.

This may well be the bird present last winter having overwintered elsewhere in S Spain and now moving north with flocks of cranes resting these days at Gallocanta, a well known wintering and stopover site for the species. If considered different would be 2nd for Spain (ed. comment). See photos below (J.A.Sánchez González). An afternoon attempt to relocate the bird (last seen at 13:15) has failed due to massive arrival of cranes (35.000 roosting there). Any twitch attempt should be carried out during the morning. A local told J.Train that that bird might have been there since 20.2 but that report is not 100% confirmed. Relocated on 25.2 afternoon (José Angel Sánchez, Luis Salguero, Antonio Torrijo y Felipe Rosado; Javier Train).UTM ED50 30 T  X=627328 Y=4537837. Also present on 26.2 (Javier Otal, C.A.Usategui,X.Piñeiro et al; David Bowyer). nThe bird presumably left the area northwards on 27.2 with c.78.000 cranes (Asociación de Amigos de Gallocanta) and it was not seen again. See a special photopage with more photos on this bird: Where it has overwintered?
