At first I thought this was a duplicate thread for bird stamps ( http://www.stampcommunity.org/topic...OPIC_ID=5934), but now I see it is more of a distant cousin! :-)


So, when do things get better?

Nells....You have it the wrong way round, bird stamps are the distant cousins ..TRAVELLING BIRDS are the real flying birds, proven by a clear postmark which can be also be seen on this map http://g.co/maps/tpjra

great to see the new issues getting to the map. Besides the Osprey, there's an eagle, harrier, falcon and goshwak to this set issued in January 2012.

Here's an important question. Which type of cancel do you prefer- the smaller 'socked on the nose' type which covers the stamp, (can be seen in the last uploads of carebear and Leng or the neat 'purposely avoids too much of the stamp' cancel as in the new duck stamp above.
