Carroll Birds, Butterflies & Moths Birds c1940 Birds c1940 25 - Produced around 1940, but never actually issued, these cards contain lovely delicate colour artwork picturing British birds against appropriate backgrounds. There is plenty of information on the numbered backs which give details of habitat, how many eggs are usually laid etc. The text pulls no punches, for instance the Wood-Pigeon card says “Nothing good can be said of this bird” whilst the Kite is recorded as “somewhat cowardly”. Birds include the Green Plover, Reed Warbler, Tree Pipit, Oyster Catcher, Chiffchaff, Hooded Crow, Rook, Hawfinch, Pied Wagtail, Mistle Thrush, Sky Lark, Cuckoo, Sparrow Hawk, Magpie etc., but not common favourites like the Robin or Blackbird for some reason. A lovely set for any bird lover, size 63 x 38mm
