It is quite common migratory bird in Europe and Far East Asia, and some habitant in southern Africa. In Hongkong, winter is good season to find them in Maipo wetland. But as many different reasons, Black Stork becomes rare in northern Europe, the amount of them are decreasing. Stamps on this envelope is a whole set issued on 2005, and also franked with other bird definitive stamps which are other species. Thanks to Alexander Rusak for the great help.
