Virtual Birdfair Auction 2020

Read more ...


Since 1989 Birdfair has raised over £5 million for vital conservation projects across the globe, steering resources towards the places where nature needs help most. This year’s project continues that trend by scaling up protection of the Helmeted Hornbill, which has suffered catastrophic declines in the 21st Century as a result of unsustainable hunting. The project will also advance research into the wider threats posed by illegal bird trade – which now has greater recognition as having wider implications for human well-being.

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our exhibitors and visitors, to date our auctions have raised over £250,000 for vital conservation projects. With your help we are hoping that virtually we will add further to that figure.

 

Exhibitors and celebrities have kindly given a wealth of super items over the years, from art prints and coveted books to optics equipment or once-in-a-lifetime birding holidays. This year is no exception. Once again, our generous supporters have excelled themselves and we are delighted to have a selection of fantastic lots.

 

The auction will run from 9.00 am on Friday 21st August to 5pm on Sunday 23rd August.

Organic food products linked to the conservation of birds and their habitats.
When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
