| Pelecanus conspicillatus|
Created by the dumping of dredge spoil since the 1970s, the low-lying artificial island is subject to storm surges, which together with fox predation, caused breeding failures in 2007-8.  After implementation of a fox-baiting program, pelican numbers soon recovered, to more than 1200 pairs in 2010.
