White-Tailed eagle & Eagle Comics
Here's an interesting combo, a White- tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) and Dan Dare of Eagle comic fame. The stamp is from the 10v set of 2007 UK Endangered Birds. The white-tailed eagle went extinct in the UK during the early 20th century, due to illegal killing, and the present population of 30 pairs has been reintroduced.
