This page is for listing stamps which have been announced several months before they are due to be issued.
If you know of any forthcoming issues which may include bird stamps not listed here, please let me know!
|Country||Detail||Date of Issue||Source of information|
||The Programme for 2020 includes Bird of the Year, single featuring Eurasian Capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus).||3 March 2020||Belposta|
||I have received the programme for 2020 which includes "Special series: the 100th anniversary of Bird protection society", but with no further details. We may hear early news about this issue from Birdlife International's partner in Luxembourg.||10 March 2020||PhilatéLux|
||Birds: 4 stamps featuring Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica), Eurasian Skylark (Alauda arvensis) and White Wagtail (Motacilla alba). Unfortunately, all 4 species have appeared on earlier Finnish stamps, though these are an improvement. I notice none of the species is named on the stamps, so perhaps this image is an early version of the issue.||12 March 2020||Image sent by correspondent|

This issue has obviously been delayed. Several issues are listed for June to August but none seems to be available yet. I would be surprised if this issue is
released during 2019!
Update Email from Post PNG's Philatelic Department: the stamps should be out in November.
Update Despite earlier optimism, a correspondent informs me that he has an email from Post PNG's Philatelic Department: the issue has been postponed until next year.
