Photographer's Note

Filfla is a small, uninhabited islet 5 kilometres south of Malta. Filfoletta, a small rocky islet about 100 meters on the right hand side of the photo is the southernmost point of Malta.

Filfla has an area of just 6 hectares and is a limestone plateau surrounded by 60 metre cliffs. Until 1971 the Royal Navy and Air Force used the island for target practice. It became a bird reserve in 1980. Three species of sea birds breed on the islet: the European Storm Petrel, Cory's Shearwater and Yellow-legged Gull.
