Member Benefits

A Summary of What Benefits Our Members Receive


Flight Magazine – Quite possibly the only dedicated members magazine on bird stamps, and the Society’s core product. Issued 4 times a year in full colour, delivered to your doorstep or via email.

Bird Stamp Listings – New issue listings compiled into catalogue format by member John Graham. Members can receive free listings up to 2016, and the latest catalogue (up to mid 2020) is available from £15.

Access ALL Flight Back Issues

The Members Portal currently holds back issues of Flight to 1995, and will eventually hold ALL the issues back to No 1, issued in 1986.

BSS Packet Scheme

The Society operates a very successful Packet scheme, and all members are invited to participate in the scheme.

BBB Blog

Our Blog is now only available for BSS members. It is updated on a fairly regular basis. All members can submit articles, notes, questions etc to the Blog, and may also comment on Blog articles, and are actively encouraged to do so.

BSS Forum

As with the Blog, members will be encouraged to participate in the BSS Forum. Categories include Bird Stamp Collecting; Bird Identification; Postal Stationary; Cinderellas and Local Issues; FAQs and much more.

The BSS Library

Currently under construction, the BSS Library will be a comprehensive resource of, for example, articles, exhibition material, research papers, Society business documents and more, for members to peruse online or download.

Future Developments

Developments on the horizon include a Junior Corner; A Wants List area, where members will have the opportunity to display their Wants Lists, in an ‘Exchange and Mart’ facility, and a New Issues page/s.
