Successful breeding of the European Bee-eater Merops apiaster at ca 1200 m elevation in Valais (southwestern Swiss Alps) In 2018, the European Bee-eater bred at 1165 m above see level on a South-exposed slope of the Upper Rhône Valais (southwestern Swiss Alps). At least four juveniles fledged, from apparently one single occupied breeding hole. The landscape is dominated by cultivated grasslands and hedges, and surrounded by xeric, sub-Mediterranean oak and pine forests. To the best of our knowledge this represents a new altitudinal record for western Europe outside the Mediterranean basin.
