Wilson Birds, Butterflies & Moths Young of British Birds 2007 Young of British Birds 2007 LT6 - Ken Davison’s brilliant photography has been seen before on Wilson’s four “Nests and Eggs” series. This time his camera has captured some delightful shots of chicks and fledglings in their natural habitat, from a fluffy Mallard to a beaky Merlin and a juvenile Robin too young to be sporting a red breast. Would be better for having some information on the backs. Size 90 x 63mm.

Players Birds, Butterflies & Moths Birds and Their Young 2nd Series (unissued) 1955 Birds and Their Young 2nd Series (unissued) 1955 25 - In 1955 Players prepared two sets of 25 cards for issue. The pictures and text for both these sets was taken from the 1937 set of the same name, but split into two sets of 25 and unlike the original issue these did not have adhesive backs or the album advert. We love the pictures in this second set showing a Mute Swan and cygnets, the Starling feeding its chick from a bowl, the adorably fluffy chicks of the Redshank, a Greenfinch who looks like he has had enough of his greedy chicks and the Bullfinches using teamwork to keep their chicks fed. A delightful set with cards size 66 x 36mm.
