214. Killer Penguins.

A fun set of 4 stamps is to be issued by The Falkland Islands on 28 March 2013 entitled "Penguins, Predators And Prey". The stamps depict wonderful artwork by Tony Chater which shows local rockhopper penguins as well as one of its predators, the Johnny Rook, as it is known locally in the islands, and an unfortunate crustacean - the lobster krill - prey of the penguins to whom the Rockhoppers must be "Killer Penguins". 
 Other Commonwealth new issues include a set of 5 stamps and 1 miniature sheet to be issued by Tristan Da Cunha on 15 April 2013 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and a set of 4 stamps from Fiji, issue date not yet known, which include a charity surcharge  and commemorate the Fiji Paralympic Committee:-
