Collecting interests: completely random and utterly disorganised. My interests are stimulated more by acquiring knowledge about the birds that are featured on the stamps that attract my interest. I also like to learn about the artists that have designed the stamps. Basically, I follow what I like when I see when I see it, rather than follow a pre-determined or a defined collecting path. Not very helpful, I know. Amongst this chaos are stamps from Belgium, French Overseas Territories, British Overseas Territories, Australia and its Dependencies and Bosnia Herzegovina.

Random bird stamp research when in hibernation / Lockdown

So, what did you do in Lockdown? Attached is an article written by member Steve Ardron. Steve says “I enclose some ramblings that I have put together, based on a daft idea that I had which was to stimulate some “random based research” on bird stamps by using an assorted stamp pack (80 bird stamps) that I bought online from WH Smith.  

I guess that It is easy to be dismissive about these assorted stamp packets, but I did find some interesting stamps in there and I did get my £6.99’s worth of amusement value. 

I haven’t as yet completed my research on them: only just started! There are other interesting stamps in the pack, but I have confined my text to the four that interested me most, from Tanzania.
