Commonwealth Stamps Opinion has published some details of Royal Mail's Programme for 2019 which includes Birds of Prey. One stamp has been shown, featuring Red Kite (Milvus milvus). Other species to be confirmed are Merlin (Falco columbarius), Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus), Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) and Eurasian Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus).
If the issue is to be the usual 10 first class stamps, then I suspect, like last year's Owls, each species will feature on 2 stamps, probably head close up and flight view.
Other details of this issue include "The images in the Birds of Prey stamp issue have all been photographed especially for Royal Mail by photographer, Tim Flach. The birds featured all breed in the UK and are captured in characteristic poses of flight or in close up to show their features."
Update: Royal Mail has published more details of it 2019 issues
