25th anniversary of Buzin

L : Little Grebe (小鸊鷈) ; R : Common Buzzard (鵟)
Belgium (2010)

12th April, 2010. Antwerpen

Thanks for Thomas his surprise, I found above mail in my mailbox on April 20, very luckily it avoided the suspension of air traffic on mid-April. This year, to commemorate the series of bird definitive stamps issued 25th anniversary, the post office specially issued a souvenir sheet featuring five bird of preys to mark this event during Birdpex 6, an international philatelic exhibition related to bird theme. Above cover features one stamp from the sheet and one definitive stamp issued on January respectively. Little Grebe and Common Buzzard are commonly to be found in Eurasia, however the grebe is minatory and buzzard is resident. In each winter, the grebes will migrate to sub-Saharan countries and Australia.

The cover also have an autograph of Buzin, it is the second cover with his signature.
