Paul said:  “The Island is a great place to observe coastal and seabirds so I was delighted to be asked to produce this series. The main problem was to decide which birds to choose. I think the selection reflects some of the variety we see around the Island and it was a pleasure to work on the paintings. It is always a thrill to see the first set of stamps — I always think of them as tiny limited edition prints which travel the world!”

Joh. Enschede printed the stamps by offset in sheets of 15.
