THIS dra­matic fal­con stamp will cer­tainly help your let­ters or post­cards wing their way to the re­cip­i­ents.

It is one of a set of ten fea­tur­ing im­ages of birds of prey na­tive to Bri­tain, in­clud­ing the red kite, golden ea­gle, kestrel and pere­grine fal­con in a va­ri­ety of close-ups and pic­tures in flight.

The stamps are orig­i­nal shots taken at the In­ter­na­tional Cen­tre for Birds of Prey in Glouces­ter­shire by Tim Flach, who spe­cialises in an­i­mal photograph­y.

Philip Parker, of Royal Mail, said: ‘Tim Flach’s photograph­y cap­tures their beauty in ex­tra­or­di­nary de­tail.’

Jemima Parry-Jones, the cen­tre’s di­rec­tor, said: ‘See if you can recog­nise birds that you might see in your gar­den – like a spar­rowhawk, a kestrel or a buz­zard sit­ting on a tele­graph pole.’
