A little challenge for our bird photographers:

Can we find a photo, taken on Lamma, of each of the birds in this just released special stamp series by HK Post?

Some are easy, but has anybody ever seen a Barn Swallow on Lamma, or a Greater Painted Snipe?

L-G - think you'll find the stamps were issued several months ago.

Barn Swallows are all over the place this time of year, & think you posted a photo of several on a wire a year or so ago,
Never seen the Snipe although Harry saw one hanging around near PSB last year - but no photos

Well, I don't really keep up-to-date with new stamps, but special stamps used to sell out within days at the HK post offices, I vaguely remember, and they had loads of them left at our local post office?

Any Fork-tailed Sunbird photos?

Some, but nothing worth showing.
Zep posted a very good one a few months ago
