Christmas 2012 – Winter In Denmark!

VN:F [1.9.1_1087]
Rating: 4.0/5

B.S. Ingemann’s “The Snow Lies Heavy” (I sne star urt og busk i skjul) from 1831 is one of the most beautiful and famous Danish winter songs. In fact, Danish winters often have relatively few snowy days, yet we still enjoy listening to the little bird perched on a frozen branch as its song ushers in the spring. “The Snow Lies Heavy” inspired the three stamps issued by the Post Danmark on the theme of winter.

Tristan da Cunha WWF Stamp Issue

VN:F [1.9.1_1087]
Rating: 4.4/5

This stamp issue, produced in association with the World Wild Life Fund For Nature (WWF), depicts the Tristan Albatross (Diomedea dabbenena) which was only widely recognised as a full species in 1998.  WWF is one of the world’s leading conservation organisations working towards conservation and sustainability.

There are three breeding species of Albatross within the Tristan Group. The Tristan Albatross is considered the most endangered.  Originally thought to be a sub-species of the Wandering Albatross, it is practically indistinguishable from that bird at sea, but the Tristan Albatross is smaller and has a slightly darker back with a wing span of some 3 metres.  It never attains the full white plumage of the Wandering Albatross and its bill is about 25mm shorter.
