So far we haven’t had a real winter here in Amsterdam this year either, but last night it snowed for the first time! Unfortunately it’s melted away already.. These pictures were taken this morning

It’s always fun to see a bird for the first time! Since I’m new at birding, this happens with fairly common birds as well. Here’s a Eurasian Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla), a cute little warbler related to the Garden Warbler (see previous post).
