Geneva / Mt Saleve

I have an afternoon up Mt Saleve on Sunday 25 October and an early morning in Geneva on 26 October. Can anyone give me any pointers of what I might expect in these areas? Is Alpine Accentor or Snowfinch a possibility up Mt Saleve. Really not expecting much in this area at this time of year but if anyone can give me any pointers to anything that might be different from northern England I would appreciate it. Might there be any locations that I should go instead?

Thanks for your advice.

Too low for both Accentor and Snowfinch. Nutcracker may be possible there.

In October, I'd try the rapter migration point "Defilé de l'ecluse" near Chevrier. This is supposed to be spectacular if weather conditions are right.
