Britain contains a great diversity of wildlife habitats within it's small area, ranging from fragrant bluebells woods to upland heathland to coastal seabird islands to the tops of the highest mountains. Many have been influenced by human activity but this has created unique habitats in itself, like hedgerows, sheep grazed chalk downlands, cattle grazed heathland and even the biggest cities have pockets of wilderness hidden within them.
