British Garden Birds - The First Commemorative Post & Go Labels

With all the new developments in communication, the way we are using the postal system is changing. Because of the Ebay phenomenon, many people need to post packets and parcels, which meant a wait at the counter in the Post Office to check the weight of the packet. Post & Go terminals allow customers to weigh their letters and packets, pay for and print postage labels and stamps without the need to visit the counter.

Birds were chosen as the theme, because they are very popular. many people don't realise the variety and colour of the birds around us every day. The six chosen are the Blue tit, the Goldfinch, the House Sparrow, the Robin, the Starling and the Wood Pigeon. Although they are amongst the twenty most common birds in Britain, many garden birds are now in decline. Even the sparrow, whose chirrups were once the background noise everywhere, are much scarcer than they were.
