Namibia (2008)

23rd May, 2010. Windhoek Central

In recent years, Namibia Post issues couple of bird stamp sets and most of them are attractive to theme collectors. Mostly each set featuring four to five stamps and only related to one family. Above example which appears on the cover, was issued on 2008 illustrated 5 different wavers to be found in Namibia or south-western Africa. Thanks for Yoram who arranged the covers from the booths of Namibia and Botswana (until now, 3rd July. The cover still disappears), which two philatelic bureaux were shown in London 2010. However very sorry to tell you that originally the cover should sent by registered mail ! Namibia Post made a big mistake for us.
