    Hi Sharon and WWT
    The picture is based on various photos (provided by WWT) and a bit of camcordering I did last year when undertaking searches for new Spoon-billed Sandpiper nesting sites in the Chukotka area of the Russian Far East (on the Heritage Expeditions trip to that part of the world). If you get a copy of the incredible DVD that WWT has brought out this summer you will see the amazing story of the team at Slimbridge, Birdlife International, Birds Russia, Heritage Expeditions and others who undertook to collect the first batch of 20 eggs in 2011.
    The prints cost:
    Prints 1 – 10 (Kate Humble signed copies) £100.00 Print only
    Prints 11 – 100 (signed by artist ) £50.00 ditto
    Prints 1 – 10 £125.00 Mounted Print
    Prints 11 – 100 £75.00 ditto
    Prints 1 – 10 £155.00 Framed Print
    Prints 11 – 100 £105.00 ditto

    Once all the 100 prints are sold the WWT Project will have received approximately £4,000 towards their incredible work. I helped finance the printing costs so that is how I know the figures. I am also the proud owner of one of the prints.
    I am VERY pleased to say that about 11 of the prints have now been sold.
    The costs and all the details about ordering the prints are on Ronald’s website. The prints are absolutely beautiful and took me back to my incredible trip to that amazing part of the world.
    Helena Jefferson.
