L : Razorbill (刀嘴海雀) ; R : Bonelli's Eagle (白腹山鵰)
Gibraltar (2008)
15th February, 2009. Gibraltar (first day postmark)

In last year, when I posted an envelope from Gibraltar, I also say that I have been sent one IRC to Gibraltar post office, for exchange some stamps. It returned few days ago, thanks Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau for the nice stamps and cancellation. Once again, it franked with newest definitive stamps issued on 2008. This excellent illustrated bird definitive set contains 14 stamps and there to be continued issue three more stamps on 15th September of 2009.

These two species, are very common in southern Europe and northern Africa, here has been written their description in different Portugal issues. Gibraltar located next to Spain's south boundary and opposites of Morocco, conjunction of Mediterranean and Atlantic, it also not far away from Portugal.
