Christmas Robins, a series issued by the Royal Mail for Christmas 1995

This stamp features a Robin, green railings and a background of Holly.

The photo of a robin was supplied by fellow MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN SOCIETY member, David Dickinson in Rome,
The photo of Holly was taken at the beginning of December by our daughter when she visited El Escorial, Spain.
