Filfla

By Carl86  
This was taken on a recent boat trip to this rock. Filfla is a very small island located 4km off the southern Maltese shores which was used as target practise by the British forces in the late 1800s until the mid 1900s. At a glance it may seem as a barren lifeless rock, however surprisingly it hosts a number of endemic flora and fauna which are found nowhere else in the world, not even on the neighbouring Malta/Gozo. It is also home to the largest Mediterranean colony of European Storm Petrels (Hydrobates pelagicus), an offshore seabird which breeds in the islet.
