Here is a cover from Hong Kong with a strip of 3 Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) stamps. Common Kingfisher lives in Europe, Asia and north Africa and it migrates when the water is frozen. It dives to catch fish. It also feeds on freshwater shrimps and aquatic insects. It is a small kingfisher and it has seven subspecies.
