Cover from Switzerland
A letter sent from Ascona (canton of Ticino) in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland on 4 November 2008, and received 3 days later. The 1.30 CHF self-adhesive stamp, issued on 8 May 2008, shows Rufous-tailed Rock trush (Monticola saxatilis), from the series of definitives dedicated to common domestic birds.
The nice automatic postmark has a picture of Lago Maggiore and the text: "Ancona - vacanze ideali" (ideal holidays).
