New Island Appears Off Coast of Germany

Quote:
A new island the size of 34 acres and providing sanctuary for hundreds of sea birds has emerged from the waters of the North Sea.

Despite its youthful age the sickle-shaped island lying 16 miles off the coast of the German state of Schleswig Holstein is already home to around 50 different plant species and proved popular with sea birds such as herring gulls and oyster catchers, eager to take advantage of its unspoilt and pristine environment.
Formed over just 10 years, the rapid appearance of the island has surprised scientists familiar with the strong winds and shifting shifts that characterise Germany's North Sea coast.
"The fact that in just a few years a new island is formed is very impressive," said Detlef Hansen, who works at the neighbouring Wadden Sea National Park. "For conservationists this is anything but ordinary."
The formation of new sandbanks in the shallow waters of the Wadden Sea park are not uncommon but scientist said it is rare for one to survive the winter storms and establish itself as an island. The new land mass now boast dunes as high as four metres, and the grasses and other plants emerging from its windswept surface have provided it with a certain resilience to the eroding hand of nature.
Given the name Norderoogsand, the island has also benefited from lying in a position sheltered by other islands and from the fact that over the past decade there have been few high storm surges.
Scientists added however that despite its current size a serious storm could destroy the island.

This just in: the UK, Argentina, Japan, and China have all just claimed sovereignty over the island.

Looks cool, wonder if there will be a huge fight over who gets it.

it's on German territory as the island emerged in the Nationalpark Schleswig-Holsteinisches Wattenmeer.
don't think it's gonna be open for public as they don't want to disturb the birds.
