Traffic cameras dont have flashes. They use nightvision to see in dark.

Amber lights flashing are used for warning. That could be a decrease in speed limit, unpredictable turn, roadwork, sudden change in pavement, grading etc...

This was just one single flash and it was daytime approx 16.00hrs. Are there any speed camera's on the autobahn network? i noticed them on minor roads.

There are speed cameras on the Autobahn, but I guess a lot fewer than in the UK.

If you're below 20kmh over, fines would be lower than what it costs you to fill up your car in the UK. (10-30EUR) Even if you were a little over 20kmh, it would be "only" 70EUR and 1 point. So just relax and see what happens. Maybe nothing at all.

Think positive: maybe someone was on the bridge above the motorway and took a picture

A week ago I saw the amber flash of the speed camera that is just after a 70 prohibition sign near Huesca

Driving with passengers and not concentrating on the road? You should be lucky that you will probably get 'only' a ticket for speeding. It could end up in a terrible accident.
