More Garden Birds Faststamps in January 2011.

The second set of Birds Faststamps will be issued on 24 January, featuring 6 more garden birds, the Blackbird, Magpie, Long-tailed tit, Greenfinch, Chaffinch and Collared dove.  As with the first set, I'm pleased to say that these are all regular visitors to our Norfolk garden.


As before the stamps sold from Post & Go machines will be overprinted with one of 5 service indicators, producing a further 30 possible combinations.  I suspect some collectors will be content with an example of each bird, rather than each value. 

A presentation pack will be sold by the Philatelic Bureau with gravure-printed service indicators all 1st class.  The 'branch code' is now 002011 rather than 002010.  See the rest of the designs and technical information on our webpage
