Birds of a feather flock together in Australia Post’s new stamp issue

Australia Post features Australian waterbirds on a new stamp issue illustrated by renowned wildlife artist Christopher Pope.

The issue comprises two domestic rate (60c) stamps, depicting the Radjah Shelduck and the Pink-eared Duck, and two international rate stamps ($1.65 and $2.35) featuring the Australian Shelduck and the Plumed Whistling-Duck.

These beautiful stamp illustrations are by Christopher Pope, who acquired his love of wildlife while growing up in regional South Australian towns. The stamp issue is his fourth commission by Australia Post, having previously illustrated the Cocos (Keeling) Islands Visiting Birds (2008), Songbirds (2009) and Australian Kingfishers (2010) stamp issues.
