A before-and-after study in the UK found that large numbers of bird species used, and bred, in a newly-created lagoon.
Lagoons can form important feeding and overwintering grounds for wildfowl and waders, providing a rich supply of invertebrate food. However, they are often drained to provide farmland, or lost due to coastal management and development.
