Sir Peter Scott

Whats really annoying though is the fact Sir Peter Scott's signature is fading quite rapidly on the report and i happened to miss Lars Jonsson's exhibition at Slimbridge to celebrate the life and work of a greatly missed bird art LEGEND!

Another one of my many art hero's is Sir Peter Scott. Not only did he and his legacy continue to do loads for Bird Conservation but he also produced some of the best wildfowl paintings ever to grace our shores. I would be very pushed to mention another bird artist who could encapsulate Wigeon grazing on a cold winter morning as well as he does or Geese leaving their roost to feed in the fields. I spent many a January and February morning birding at Slimbridge whilst living in Worcester and didnt even attempt to try and put the atmosphere of the place into my sketchbook and still cant understand how he did and dont think i ever will. Ive enclosed a scanned image one of my prized possesions. A Signed copy of the Severn Wildfowl Trust 2nd annual report that means the world to me.


  1. Did Peter have kids

  2. My father is an executor to a lady who has just passed away. We are sorting out her possessions and one is a signed pencil drawing of a weathercock by Petee Scott. I think he must have been commissioned to draw it as it says for Hammermith House. Do you know where I can find out more about it?

  3. This watch is a 42.9mm steel-cased dive watch replica watches rated to 1000M. It features a flat AR-coated sapphire crystal, a helium-release replica watches uk valve at 6 o’clock, and a deep blue ceramic 120-click bezel. Aquadive also fake rolex states that the case thickness on this bad boy is 12.5mm. The BS100 hosts an ETA 2824-2 movement and comes on one of two genuine ISOFrane fake Rolex (also part of Synchron) straps, one blue and one black.
    In my opinion, Aquadive has replica rolex done something remarkable in one particular aspect. This 1000M dive watch is 12.5mm-thick. In a world where most dive watches replica Rolex sit around 14mm tall (or more), Aquadive defiantly claps back. They do fake watches so at a price point that I find really attractive, as well. The BS100 can be had for as little rolex replica as $1590 during their pre-order sale ($1890 after).
