This lovely card shows an Albatross and chick at the nest, one of many seabird species that nest and feed in the Falkland Islands. The card was franked with two lovely stamps, showing penguins and a colorful fungi species.


This fantastic card comes from Gibraltar, one of the oldest British outposts, located strategically at the edge of Europe and just a few miles from the N. African coast. It was franked with several interesting stamps, including a pair of Woodchat Shrikes from a 2008 definitive series showing birds.
