In the small forest just below the forest fire area various titmice, robins and nuthatches cavort. Perhaps alpine species, such as the Rock Robin Chat, will breed in this environment again this year. A view into the sky is also worthwhile to look for falcons, buzzards or eagles in case of thermals.

At the end you will have a breakfast. The duration of the excursion is calculated including the breakfast.

The excursion is conducted in German and French. Number of participants is limited and registration is necessary: Tel +41 (0)27 452 60 60, admin@pfyn-finges.ch or online www.pfyn-finges.ch
