Xianghai National Nature Reserve

L : Golden Eagle (金鷹) ; R : Common Shelduck (翹鼻麻鴨)
China (2005)
11th June, 2010. Zhejiang Normal University, Zhejiang

In last year, here was shown a maxicard with a shelduck which cancelled at Xianghai, Jilin. This nature reserve is one of the largest reserve in North-east China. Once again, thanks James, he also sent me a cover with this stamp set Xianghai National Nature Reserve, however it sent from Zhejiang, the rich and beautiful area nearby Yangzi River. Anyway it sounds nice as the cover keep tidy with clear postmarks. The Golden Eagle is commonly to be found in whole Chinese area, but there has two sub-species, the stamp seems illustrated Aquila chrysaetos canadensis as this sub-species lives in north-east and Inner Mongolia of China. Shelduck also commonly breeding in northern part of Eurasia. However, these two species will emigrate to south near Yangzi River for winter.
