Hi Ursula! I'm thinking chamois mainly because of the facial markings (white with black stripes below the eyes), and I think I can also see a dark stripe along the back, another distinguishing feature.

Hm ... Daniele-you made me think and check it out! You think it's chamois, not ibex?? I'm not sure because of the color ...
