As St Patrick's Day falls this weekend I thought for this week's "anything you like" option I would look what stamps I had for Ireland so here are some native birds,
Ireland has been issuing Irish flora and fauna definitive stamps since 1997 and these birds span the change of currency from the first two in Irish pennies to
the change to the Euro in 2002 when the charge was in cents. Thirty Irish birds have appeared on the stamps
one of the last to be issued (which finished the series) was the 60c Sea Puffin. All stamps were designed by Killian Mullarney the Irish ornithologist and bird artist living in County Wexford, possibly most famous for his illustrations in bird identification guides.
