I really enjoyed those Cork Oak forests you mention. The Alentejo was also great. I didn't see a huge range of species as it wasn't a birding holiday but Red-necked Nightjar on a track in the hills...

Thank you. Not a clue myself. Had a look at the hybrid pages in Collins but nothing jumps out. There are Pochard and Red crested Pochard on the same small lake. Maybe Tufted x Pochard?

Hybrid duck or eclipse? Switzerland today

Hi everybody

Can somebody id this duck please? Seen today on a small lake in central Switzerland.
It's got oddly dark flanks and a strange head shape. Or is it just an eclipse bird?

Thanks in...

Alpine shrew? Switzerland

Hi everybody

Could this be an Alpine shrew? The tail looks fairly long in relation to the body and the underside of the tail is white. Found it at 1,600 metres a.s.l.

Thanks in advance

Agree that it sounds better for Green Sandpiper. If you manage to see the rump, then you could probably confirm Green Sandpiper. They have a very distinctive white rump and are otherwise dark. They...
