Short hike in the Toggenburg
Trying to escape the heat in Switzerland this weekend we went up into the mountains. Just for a half a day trip. We were up on 1500 meters by nine in the morning (thanks to the chair-lift) and did a little hike along a Toggenburg Panorama Trail.
We didn’t see many birds, but heard some – and I still cannot identify them by their song. I was able to take some photos of the Water Pipit – anthus spinoletta. In German it is called Bergpieper what would be the “Mountain Pipit”.
We also saw a little rabbit jumping through the grass. At the end we took a little wooden box-lift (a max of 4 adults an 2 children is allowed) that took us down to the valley again.
