The greatest glory of British birds is song - the unwinding chorus that starts in January, swells to a peak at the beginning of May and then gradually dies down. Birdsong predates humanity and is perhaps the source of our own musicality. The more you listen, the richer it gets.
These special stamps celebrate some familiar and some not so familiar songbirds that we have come to see and love in our gardens each year.
This presentation pack reveals some beautiful photography to accompany the ten special stamps that depict the songbirds. You can explore where you might find each one and when. You will also learn each individual song to listen out for as well. The informative information on each songbird has been written by Simon Barnes, a journalist and author of several books on birds and bird watching.
