Bermagui Local Post issues bird stamps

A few weeks ago, I mentioned the March 1 launch of a new local post in New South Wales, Australia: Bermagui Local Post, operated by one Miro J. New local posts don’t pop up every day, so I’m always happy to welcome a new entrant in that quarter of our hobby.

On June 15, Bermagui Local Post issued its second set of stamps, a strip of three designs picturing birds. The stamps were issued in 20¢, 40¢, and 80¢ values.

The cancellations used on this postcard appear to be based on the design of the new 80¢ stamp.

I’m no ornithologist, so I can’t tell you what each of the birds pictured is. Perhaps one of my faithful readers can help us out?

Hey Kevin,

I’m no ornithologist either! But these birds ate common in Bermi. It’s a Pigeon, a Pink and Grey Galah, and a Masked Lapwing.

Thanks for the info! We have plenty of pigeons and doves around here, but no lapwings or galahs.
