New birds stamp set from Latvia

Latvijas Pasts has released unique additions to Birds series of stamps featuring the hoopoe (Upupa epops), bird of 2014 in Latvia, and the jack snipe (Lymnocryptes minimus), which has never been depicted before in philatelic editions of the world. 
The new stamps have been designed by artist Ģirts Grīva and each has a print run of 300,000 copies. The denomination of the stamp featuring the hoopoe is EUR 1.39, which corresponds to the cost of mailing a registered letter within Latvia, while the denomination of the stamp dedicated to the jack snipe is EUR 0.50, suitable for mailing a regular letter within Latvia. The release of the stamps is accompanied by the issue of two special envelopes depicting both birds, with a print run of 1,500 copies each.
