Finally I rescan this large envelope which sent on the first day issue of British Endangered Birds. The set, as the series, features 10 variety species to be found in the islands. Actually they are not very special in the world but after industry revolution, the wild environment of British became poor and as inhabit loss, population of some species largely decrease. However it is not too late to stop this situation when couple of environment rules come out recent years and now some of population is growing up.

Red Kite, one of stamp in this set, was shown in this blog on 2009. Above packet especially thanks to Yoram, he is helpful to send me covers from Britain and other countries.
