Australia- Kakadu Birds

Stamp collectors never finish their sorting and arranging and writing up their collections. Rewards  can come  from  sorting out packets and here is todays' surprise. Great clear postmark from Tasmania, in fact the first Tasmanian postmark to get on the map http://g.co/maps/tpjra . Australia is a very large continent, Kakadu is in the very far north compared to Tassie which is as far south as you can go
 Stamps are  from the 1997 series  Kakadu  Birds . Little Kingfisher ( Ceyx pusillus)  Brolga ( Grus rubicunda)   Comb-crested Jacana  ( Irediparra gallinacea )
