Scorpions

First issued in August 2013

August is a good month to spot Euscorpius Pharoensis, the small, shy and essentially harmless Pharoan scorpion which is illustrated on this month’s stamps. This sub-species in intimately associated with the history of banana consumption on the island.

The International Lighthouse Weekend was celebrated on 16 to 18 August with a programme of events loosely associated with the sea and seafaring, many of which were sadly afflicted by inclement weather.
