Since 2007, Jersey Post issues a series of Birdlife stamp on each year with featuring 6 species of each set. The natural series Ducks and Swans was shown last week was successful illustrated by Nick Parlett and he drawn this series never finish. This time, two ordinary covers feature newest Woodland Birds series issued on April 1st of this year to be shown in here, the thanks for the arrangements by James. Same as before, I don't not have hope on the postmark as Jersey Post and its philatelic department is one of the most uncoordinated and unfriendly postal administration in the world.

Chiffchaff is a common migrated bird in European and Asian countries, mostly to be found in woodlands, when during migratory season they will move to southern Europe, Asia and northern Africa.

Great Spotted Woodpecker is a common woodpecker to be found in the woodlands of Europe, northern Asia and the most part of China. The woodpecker measures in middle size about 25cm long with a pair of 38-40cm width wings. The diet of bird is seeds of the plants.

This fourth series of Birdlife stamp set also features Jay (松鴉), Short-toed Treecreeper (短趾旋木雀), Long-tailed Tit (銀喉長尾山雀) and Turtle Dove (歐斑鳩).
