7th in the series ,since 2005, on nature reserves in the Czech Republic, is this colorful and busy sheetlet representing Karlstejn Nature Reserve, containing four actual stamps two of which are bird stamps . The 18Kc stamp has a perched Northern Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe) and the 20Kc stamp has a flying Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) except for this Common Buzzard all other fauna and flora have Latin and Czech names.Received on a registered cover, this is a delightful addition for Traveling Birds.
European Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis), Eurasian blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) Eurasian Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula)
Three Semi-postal (for the youth) songbirds on a registered cover from Germany. Very attractive stamps of three very pretty little birds with the illustrations clearly seen against a white background.
