Swiss Birds

We moved to Switzerland in 2007 and it's been interesting to get to know a new birding scene. Most of the species are the same, but there are some differences. Some birds that are rare migrants and accidentals to Britain are more common here as well as some that have never appeared in the UK. All the photos here are with a Kodak P850

21/06/2010: I've replaced some of the pictures so that they're larger and added several new photos to some older pages - look for pages marked 'updated'
