A small island 0.25 mi NE of Turner Island, lying off Breidnes Peninsula, Vestfold Hills. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37. Visited by an ANARE party led by Phillip Law on March 3, 1954. So named because magnetic observations taken there by J. Brooks showed the declination to be anomalous.
