Alderney Resident Passerines

May 6th, 2008

Alderney will issue a set of 6 stamps on 24 may 2008 featuring birds found in the surrounding area.

Alderney’s wildlife continues to thrive and this is no more widely seen than in its bird population. While seabirds have made the coast, cliffs, beaches and offshore rocky outposts their home, resident passerines have taken advantage of the wild commons, domestic gardens and even the abandoned forts and bunkers that are prevalent in the island. This environment is manna from heaven for the birds and is one of the main reasons why Alderney is an essential destination for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts from around the world.

The values are 32p, 37p, 45p, 48p, 50p, 71p and will be printed by BDT International. A prestige booklet will also be available at £11.32.
