    Internationally-renowned engraver, Malcolm Appleby has agreed to make these original sterling silver brooches for the RSPB to raise funds for the conservation of this highly endangered, charismatic bird and the native Caledonian pine forest habitat upon which it depends.

    The front depicts a lekking capercaillie, tail feathers fanned, and on the reverse (engraving on the back is a feature of Malcolm's work) is a granny pine.

    'It has a big head and lovely wings and on the back is a caper-shaped granny pine. Scots pine are brilliant things, so full of life and important for capercaillie survival' says Malcolm.

    About the capercaillie and RSPB Abernethy Reserve
    Fewer than 1,200 individual capercaillie remain, all found in Scotland, and urgent work is underway to secure their future. RSPB Abernethy is one of their remaining strongholds, and funds raised from the sale of these unique pendants will support important conservation work at this site.

    All funds raised from the sale of these brooches will support Capercaillie conservation work at RSPB Abernethy Reserve.

    This item is made to order and sent direct from Malcolm Appleby's workshop in Scotland. Please allow 5-6 weeks for delivery.
