Silent auction of Osprey illustration

To mark our incredible female osprey’s latest feat of producing a clutch of four eggs, we are offering for auction a unique piece of original artwork.

During his stay in 2011, Simon Forkner, who was residential volunteer at Loch of the Lowes, produced this fantastic portrait illustration of our famous female, affectionately known as “Lady”.

The illustration has been produced using pencil & acrylic, is presented in a double mount with backboard and sized to fit standard UK frame size 16″ x 12″ (artists easel not included).

The auction is open for silent bids up to and including Sunday 12th May.

The highest 5 bidders will be notified within 48 hours before the closing date of the auction and informed of their status as a top 5 bidder (but not their position within the top 5). Should such entrants wish to increase their bid, this will supersede any previous entries they have made.

Bids should be emailed to lochofthelowes@swt.org.uk, with contact details (name, address, telephone number) so that we can contact the winner. If there is a tie then a winner will be drawn at random from the highest bidders.

We have set a reserve price of £100 and proceeds from the sale will go towards the Osprey Satellite Tracking Fund.
