You're welcome Muckpuk, I'm often not 100% sure, but if you browse through the spottings at inaturalist of this species you will see some individuals with bright red head, that made me quite sure it's this species ;)

Thank you Gaia80. That seems to be the one! Except for the fact that I do not see the red head.
