Yesterday was not just a normal day at the office. The sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) that had been swimming around in Mariager Fjord, Jutland, for a while, had died. The @statensnaturhistoriskemuseum would like to secure the skeleton for the collection (it's only the third time in historical times that a sei whale has beached in Denmark) and whale teams and scientist from around the country assembled upon Hobro in order to measure, sample, and de-flesh the creature from the seas. It got massive attention from the press and local people in and around Hobro. It took a good days work to get it done, but it was an amazing experience, as always, to get so close to such an amazing animal. Hope to see one alive next time though.
For those interested it was 7.7 meters long, a male, estimated to have been only about 1 year old. It had a good healthy layer of blubber but very pale flesh. The heart, weighing in at 27 kg, had a small default which could have contributed to it's death. The stomach content hasn't been analysed in detail yet, but initial investigation showed it to be empty.

Загадала побывать в этом году в 3 новых странах - была в 2ух: Дании и Грузии. А ещё,взобравшись на хребет Удабно(одно из самых сильных эмоциональных впечатлений за год), видела зеленую равнину Азербайджана. Хотя пока не приеду в Баку - это не считается.
Не желаю относится к мечтам прагматически,продолжаю верить в их волшебное исполнение и пищу от восторга,когда это действительно происходит.
After the past couple of days at work I'm aching in my legs as much as I would after a day walking along the beach 😂 •

Central Denmark Region, commonly referred to as Central Jutland Region and sometimes simply Mid Jutland, is an administrative region of Denmark established on 1 January 2007 as part of the 2007 Danish Municipal Reform. The reform abolished the traditional counties and replaced them with five new administrative regions. At the same time, smaller municipalities were merged into larger units, cutting the total number of municipalities from 271 to 98. Central Denmark Region comprises 19 municipalities. The western parts of the region are characterised by coastal dunes and inland heaths while the slightly elevated central parts and the relatively hilly eastern parts are characterised by forests, lakes and streams, with plenty of fertile soils. The eastern parts are the most densely populated area within the region and form a large part of the East Jutland metropolitan area with a population of about 1.4 million. -

This is the personal diary of Georg Von Hase, he was the commander of 1 of the turrets from the ship's launch until after the battle of Jutland, thus this diary follows him and his thoughts during this time. It's quite a good source if you want the German perspective from a ww1 naval standpoint, especially Jutland.

“Located near the town of Ikast, Kærshovedgård is one of Denmark’s two ‘departure centres’ (the term ‘expulsion’ is also commonly used, particularly by critics). Around 200 rejected asylum seekers are accommodated at the facility until they decide to leave.”
I couldn’t find a pair of socks this morning, before the trip to Deportation Centre Kærshovedgård.
