"25 football pitches" ???
What the hell is that ?
Anyone care to translate this into useful units of measure ?
Like beard/seconds or square barns ?
Sorry for my non-collaborative post, but I had to get this off my chest.
But back on topic, like you said OP, it is quite interesting and unusual.

Media in the UK also use the football pitch as a unit of length, although an area of the association football pitch is not fixed, but varies within a limit of 90–120 m (98–130 yd) in length and 45–90 m (50–100 yd) in width.

An island the size of 25 football pitches has appeared seemingly out of nowhere off the coast of Germany. The landmass, which is composed of sandbanks, gradually emerged from the violent waters of the North Sea over the past few years. It lies 15 miles off the coast of Schleswig-Holstein in Germany’s far north in a stretch of coastline known as the Wattenmeer, a marine national park. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...

It is the first time in a quarter of a century that a discernible landmass has appeared in the coastal waters off Germany.
Detlef Hansen, head of the national park, said; 'This is for us conservationists anything but ordinary.'
Tidal actions unrelated to global warming or other earthly phenomena have created the island.
Thought this was an interesting article to look at how an island appears and develops over time.
Most interesting and quite unusual.
