Netherlands (& Brussels)

During the last week of April, I travelled to Breda, Netherlands on business.  Although there were no “specific” birding trips (incidental birding), I paid close attention to birds in the cities and parks of where I travelled (and even from the train!).

Lovely birds were seen (including a white stork in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark) and in total, while on business – 37 species were noted and recorded.   Many were lifers!  and I was very happy to have brought my binoculars and camera with me on this trip 🙂
