*** Updated with new information
We have two recent lighthouse issues from Guernsey. The first is a variation of the previously issued Post & Go label featuring Baliwick Planes. This variation commemorates the 2021 Virtual Spring Stampex and was issued on 11 March 2021. It shows White Rock Pier L/H and Castle Breakwater Lighthouse.
The second issue is part of the Europa: Endangered National Wildlife series issued on 7 Apr 2021.
Noirmont Lighthouse on Jersey is shown at the margin of the sheet of 10 stamps showing the basking shark. I have been informed that this is not Noirmont L/H but Vivian Tower, a daymark at the approaches to St. Peter Port in the Little Russel Channel. Thanks, Jaap.

2021 has been a great year, so far, for Jersey Lighthouse stamps! First was the Post and Go issue in February. That issue was followed by a set of 6 stamps issued on 11 March titled Europa 2021 – Endangered National Wildlife – Jersey Seabirds & Marine Life. None of these six stamps shows a lighthouse but each is available in a mini-sheet of 10 stamps and each of the sheets features the island’s iconic La Corbière Lighthouse at the left margin. On the first day of April 2021 Jersey Post issued another set of photographic stamps titled Jersey From the Air showing St. Catherine’s Breakwater L/H on the 74p value and La Corbière L/H on the £1.75 value. The photographs for these stamps were taken from drones giving a unique perspective of Jersey’s scenery.
