I have received by mail a flyer which includes the programme for 2019. The first issue of 2 stamps has the topic "endangered species", one of which is "Le Pétrel". This is likely to be Polynesian Storm-Petrel (Nesofregetta fuliginosa), but I await confirmation. 25 January 2019 Reminder French Polynesia Post

Malawi Post Office Philatelic Bureau has informed me "of a new issue on 3 December 2018 (vultures of Malawi) consisting of a souvenir sheet and 5 stamps". I await images, but the list of indigenous vultures is very similar to that of Botswana which produced a similar issue in 2015.
Update: Commonwealth Stamps Opinion has published images of this issue. It has been changed to "Vultures of Africa", but unfortunately seems to include at least 2 non-African species. The image of the sheet of 6 stamps is not clear to discern the names of most of the species. The 5 single stamp miniature sheets are clearer and feature Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus), White-backed Vulture (Gyps africanus), White-rumped Vulture (Gyps bengalensis), Lappet-faced Vulture (Torgos tracheliotus) and Hooded Vulture (Necrosyrtes monachus).
The set of 6 does appear to have Lappet-faced Vulture (Torgos tracheliotus), White-rumped Vulture (Gyps bengalensis) {source}, Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus), White-backed Vulture (Gyps africanus), Rueppell's Griffon (Gyps rueppellii) {source} and Eurasian Griffon (Gyps fulvus) {source}!
