Hi Gaelle,

import obspy
from obspy import UTCDateTime
from obspy.clients.fdsn import Client
client = Client("KNMI")
tstart = UTCDateTime(2017,8,31,0,0,0)
        st=client.get_waveforms("NL", "G144", "*", "*",
                                  tstart, tstart+3600*24, attach_response=True,filename="G144/"+str(tstart)[0:10]+".mseed")

Here is my code (modified from the obspy online tutorial), used for downloading one-year Groningen data. The mseed file will be saved to the file with name <filename>.
