The Isles of Scilly comprise over 200 low-lying granitic islands and rocks, situated 28 miles to the south-west of Land's End. The habitats here are subject to extreme maritime influences. The flora includes a number of Mediterranean and West European species not found elsewhere in Britain. These islands are of prime importance for breeding seabirds and some wintering wader species.
