2009 "Birds of a Feather" Booklet overprinted in gold "Celebrating Stamp Bulletin 300 issues - 9th September 2009 Australia Post Philatelic Bureau".

The first had “Celebrating 300 issues …” imprinted in gold, the second was a minisheet with the block of the 4 different stamps. It also had a special “300 issue postmark” on its cover. This booklet was the only way to obtain all 5 minisheets and the special blocks and pairs.
