Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands
Language: Dutch, English, German, French
I live in Weesp which is situated conveniently between Amsterdam and the lush green area Het Gooi, with many wonderful sites close by, such as Oostvaardersplassen, Waterland and the North Sea coast.
The Netherlands has many things to offer in any season and thereâs always a rarity within easy reach.
Where I live, some breeding birds include Bluethroat, Bearded Reedling, Marsh Harrier and Water Rail; Osprey comes to visit now and then. in winter expect lots of waterfowl and there is a chance of Great Grey Shrike. Cettiâs Warblers are present year-round these days.
A former composer, I am now editor-copywriter of the world famous Concertgebouw Orchestra.
I have been an avid birder since I was very young. After 45 years of birding I am still impressed by what this small country has to offer, and I love to show visitors around.
I have been a birding pal since 2004 or so and have met many wonderful Pals in many countries, some of whom I have remained in contact with.
