Default Barometic Altitude Diplayed on HUD under 1000M?

Is there a way to toggle the barometric altitude and the radar calculated AGL altitude on the HUD?

No. Under 1,500m AGL the HUD will automatically display radar altitude rather than barometric. Note that the radio altimeter instrument only displays up to 1,000m AGL but the HUD reading will be based on the radar altimeter up to 1,500m AGL. Flight manual page 48.
