The Bird Stamp Society’s 'FLIGHT' new issue listing aims at reporting all birds on stamps, including those that appear in the surrounds of sheets. Those border birds that are listed in the latest issue of the magazine are illustrated here together with identifications where possible. Sometimes border images are too sketchy to support a positive identification and sometimes they are hard to place or wrongly identified for other reasons – including the compiler's lack of knowledge!
I hope that this feature will stimulate helpful responses from the wider bird stamp and birding fraternity. Please e-mail if you can make a contribution.
