Passport Birding

I renewed my passport recently, as my old one only had a few months left until it expired. On receiving my new passport, I was pleasantly surprised when flicking through the pages, to find some birds!

Red Kite, although looking decidedly blue!


Looking at the colour, must be a male Merlin!


The "nitty-gritty" page also features Crossbill and Red Grouse (I think!). Not featured here because I'm not putting my ugly mug on. Oh, and my passport number and other personal details!

By the way reader, my new passport will be in use in just over three weeks time. More on that later................

I suppose the idea behind it is to make the passport more difficult to create forgeries.

Either that, or just an excuse to get more money out of us. £72! My last one only cost £28.

Was that the one with the Dodo on?
