The Royal Mail has unveiled ten new stamps today, which honour 10 UK birds of prey – the white-tailed eagle, the buzzard, the sparrowhawk, the merlin, the golden eagle, the kestrel, the goshawk, the hobby, the red kite and the peregrine falcon.
Royal Mail also worked with Jemima Parry-Jones, the centre’s director, who said: “Enjoy the stamps, see if you can recognise those birds that you might see in your garden – like a sparrowhawk or a kestrel or a buzzard sitting on a telegraph pole. See if you can recognise them from the stamps – that would be a huge step forward.”
Philip Parker of Royal Mail said: “Our birds of prey are masters of the skies. Tim Flach’s photography for our stamps captures their beauty and character in extraordinary detail.”
