Sunday stamps

This GB set of birds was issued se-tenant in blocks of 4, in August 1966.  The card signed by the designer, J Norris Wood, was bought (by someone else, not me) at the British Philatelic Exhibition in London that same year.

  3. I only have the gull and the blue tit of this set and have been unable to find the other two at my usual sources. That robin is ready to see any intruders off.
