Swiss weekender

Three days in Switzerland with hot weather (>30 degrees every day). Great place but not such a success bird-wise. Apine Choughs at Rochers-de-Naye were superb, but the apparently common Alpine Accentors were nowhere to be seen. Maybe a longer walk was required but we didn't have the baby equipment for trekking. It was still an amazing place anyway, and the butterflies and wildflowers were fantastic. I did manage to see Nutcrackers after some searching, but they were calling from the top of some trees and I only managed poor views before I had to return to more family-related activities. I'll have to go back to see them properly next time, maybe a bit later in the year for proper vismig times. Switzerland is a pretty pricey place though.
