Missing islands 
Regarding this list of the 100 largest Danish islands, does anyone know:
In Ringkøbing Fjord:
- What is the area of Klægbanke?
- Are Fuglepold and Opgrøden in Tipperne considered to be true islands are simply part of the mainland in spite of the narrow canals seperating them from it and/or marshland? This source mentions an area of Fuglepold of "about 35 hectares" and refers to it as an island but many areas only seperated from the adjacent mainland (or island) by a narrow canal are not considered islands.
In Rønnerne south of Læsø:
- Are Hornhiskrøn and Kringelrøn considered to be true islands and in that case what are their areas? At least Hornfiskrøn seems to be a seperate island.
South-west of Falster:
- What is the area of Fugleholm]]?
I found this reference which may be of interest:
- Siø er en lille flad ø på kun 125 ha (1,25 km2). Her lå oprindelig flere øer: Skovø, Sidø og Store og Lille Fugleholm. De uinddigede øer blev brugt til sommergræsning af dyr fra Langeland. I 1861 blev øerne inddæmmet for at skabe dyrkbar jord, og det blev starten på én sammenhængende ø, Siø. I alt syv kilometer diger og flere pumper holder nu Siø tør. I dag er det primært frøavl og svineproduktion, der præger øen.
I therefore wonder whether Fugleholm is still considered to be an island in its own right.
I also found a historical reference to an island called Fugleholm in Limfjorden, although I don't know if it still exists today:
- Nord forJegindø i Limfjorden, hørende til Herregaarden Hindsels i Hvidbjerg Sogn (Thyholm) ligger Øen Fugleholm (2,5 ha), der har Form omtrent som et Koralrev, idet der paa dens Midte ligger et Par Smaalaguner tæt op ad hinanden, omkring hvilke Landet danner en næsten regelmæssig Ring. - Ipigott (talk) 10:00, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into it but the Store and Lille Fugleholm and your reference are not the same as the Fufleholm I am referring to. The one I am talking about is located off the southern tip of Falster and is clearly seen on maps. It has a stub on Danish wikipedia which you can see HERE. 3 km long and up to 100 metres wide it may well be large to make the list. The Fugleholm in Limfjorden is so small that I don't think it is of any interest to this article wheather or not it still exists to day.Ramblersen (talk) 10:21, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
- Sorry for the confusion. Have a look at the Google satellite map of Fugleholm and you will see it is essentially a sandbank, no doubt with moving parameters. Can this be considered an island? See also http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProjekt_Kom_til_kort which states: "Fugleholm jeg har sat koordinater på; men øen er vokset til ca 4 km ved at den har slået sig sammen med en øst for liggende sandbanke. Har den haft sit eget navn?" It also seems almost to reach the Falster coast near Gedser. - Ipigott (talk) 13:51, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
