There are 5 albums, each holds 96 cards, so 480 in total. I happen to have the full set. When I contacted tuckfields teas last year, they said they were not going to issue any new ones. There is a small amount of duplications of the birds (I don't know why). The cards are generally quite nice paintings and the text is OK (minimal) but a bit dated. With one exception the birds are of the species they are supposed to be. Card 188, supposedly a Pacific Gull, certainly isn't, my guess is it is a Herring Gull. Not much point advising them of this, I did about 5 years ago.

Hi there, I came across these cards in a job lot that I bought..Looked through various books and could not find anything about this beautiful bird set..Its not complete and the backs need some attention as they have been taken out of I suppose an original album..There is I think nearly ninety of them..This was a last resort to use the internet and there you were or are you still there as I believe the date on the entry was in the year 2000..In your entry you state that the numbers run from 1 to 384 WOW what an issue..The numbers I have are from 1 - 96 or were they in different titled sets..I am in the U.K. so there is no way I can collect the set..Its easier to list the ones missing under the highest number that I have..Missing are..94,95,83,73,70,61,18,21, If you need some or all of the cards I have get in touch.....FRED
