The Species List #2

26/06/2024, NOTES


Anja Hørnell documenting species at Hjortetakly


Anja Vensild Hørnell is a biologist from Copenhagen University. She works as a nature guide and communicates her knowledge about nature and science to institutions and schools. She has contributed content to the popular Danish children's TV channel, Ramasjang, and has also published a book in collaboration with the program, Wild Wonderful Animals.

At our co-hosting site Hjortetakly, biologist and nature walker, Anja Vensild Hørnell, has been documenting all the species around in the area. The intention is that know as much about the space, and the many ecological relations it holds, and second, to form an archive of the place.

Below are the list of species Anja noted on two occasions. First, September 12, 2023, and second June 26th, 2024. There might be species overlaps across the dates, but seasons change, and our forms of noticing too. This post is about the second day of creating the list, 26th June, 2024, the day of the Open Garden at Hjortetakly.
