Our avocet bird card features the distinctive black and white wader. Today the species is quite common along the East Anglian coast but it wasn't always so. It had virtually disappeared from our shores, but during World War II it started breeding again in a few locations. It is one of the success stories of bird protection and is the symbol of the RSPB. One of the best places in the UK to see these lovely shoreland birds is Norfolk, so we are obviously rather keen on them. They're so elegant with their long legs and upturned bills.
Like all our cards we hand finish the avocet with a little puff of real sheep's wool; this just adds that quirky finishing touch that is so loved by our customers, Such a collectible card and a charming birthday card for bird lovers, or everyday card for any occasion.
The card is blank inside for your own special message.
The card looks great mounted in our 4" x 6" photo frame and makes a lovely little picture and reminder for the recipient.
Supplied with a coloured envelope made from recycled paper and packed in a cello bag for protection.
Card size - 10.5 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inches). Printed on a quality 270 gsm slightly textured card stock, from our FSC certified supplier.
