Pagensand Seestermühe  Germany
The uninhabited island of Pagensand, at 5.8 kilometers (3.5 miles) long and 1 kilometer (0.6 miles) wide, is one of the largest of its kind between Hamburg and the North Sea. Formerly a sandbank on the Elbe’s east bank, it was mostly used in the last century as a site to dump dredged silt. Today it serves as a nature reserve whose abundant reeds, meadows and forests are home to an array of birdlife including bluethroats, skylarks and corncrakes.
