South Africa
Confirmed date 9 June 2016
South African Post Office has revised its programme for 2015 in an e-mail I received. The next bird series is "Kingfishers", and an image in the news item shows that one species in the set will be Half-collared Kingfisher (Alcedo semitorquata). A correspondent at SAPO informs me that the other species will be African Pygmy-Kingfisher (Ispidina picta), Giant Kingfisher (Megaceryle maximus), Mangrove Kingfisher (Halcyon senegaloides) and Pied Kingfisher (Ceryle rudis).
Update: From the latest newsletter: "The South African Popular Music Legends, Jellyfish in South African Waters and the South African Kingfishers, have been delayed due to factors beyond the control of Philatelic Services".
Update: The latest issue of the magazine Setempe has the proposed 2016 stamp programme, and it lists the Kingfishers issue for 11 July.
Update: I have received from SAPO news of revised and confirmed dates for some issues for the remainder of 2016.
