You might have to update your bucketlist.

There is a new island that has been emerging in the Pacific Ocean off Tonga. It's the work of an underground volcano.

It's apparently about a month old, and is now about a mile long. Seabirds have already moved in, laying eggs. Locals who have visited the brand new island it say it is still warm.

Read the full story in the Telegraph - and see the great photos taken by a local photo buff.
