About Birds of Prey

Gibraltar, with its unique geographical location at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, is an important habitat and migratory route for various species, making these birds of prey particularly significant to the region. The stamps and miniature sheet feature captivating photographs skillfully captured by Mr Nicholas Ferrary, a dedicated wildlife enthusiast and Gibraltarian native. The "Birds of Prey" collection showcases the following species:

Golden Eagle: A top predator, the Golden Eagle soars over mountains, preying on a diverse range of mammals and birds. Its presence underscores the importance of apex predators in maintaining ecological balance.

Black Vulture: Dominating the skies with its broad wings, the Black Vulture is a key member of nature’s cleanup crew, efficiently disposing of carcasses and contributing to ecosystem health.

Egyptian Vulture: Known for its distinctive white plumage and yellow face, the Egyptian Vulture is an adaptable scavenger that plays a vital role in waste disposal and carrion cleanup.

Imperial Eagle: The Imperial Eagle symbolises conservation efforts, highlighting the importance of habitat preservation for endangered species and ecosystem health.
