Translated from the Nieuwe Dockumer Courant in the Netherlands today:
This Wednesday, pro environment beachcomber Piet Metz found a special piece of bone on the beach of Ameland. Research by the Nature Centre Ameland on the origin of this bone has now shown that this is a vertebra of a Sowerby’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon bidens).
