Links with China - Waterfowl: 6 stamps featuring Tufted Duck (Aythya fuligula), Northern Pintail (Anas acuta), Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata), Common Shelduck (Tadorna tadorna), Smew (Mergellus albellus) and Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos). Of these duck, only Mallard and Tufted occur regularly, and have both appeared on earlier Jersey stamps. The Mandarin Duck is a fairly widespread introduced species into Western Europe, and does occur in Jersey. Smew is listed as a "Rare winter visitor". The stamps were drawn by Martin Mörck and painted by Wang Huming in Beijing. A reciprocal issue by China would be useful, but unlikely.
