Lanarkshire Longtown 1 Young Bird race 24th July 2017

Click here to see the full results.

Longtown is situated on the English/Scottish border, three miles from Gretna Green and six from Carlisle. Lanarkshire members sent 3,300 birds for the first young bird race of the season.


Due to poor weather over the weekend ,the committee agreed to race mark on Sunday for a Monday race.

The morning broke with clear blue skies and a light NNE wind and the birds were up at 10:45 for the seventy two mile race.

Well as usual the winners made good time with the velocities in the high twelve hundreds, but a big "but" was the quality of the race and the

returns,horrendous can only describe this race. Apparently the local areas around the race point was awash with Lanarkshire pigeons.

Returns at clocking 7pm are totally unacceptable for this distance, some lost most of their team and we are scheduled to go to Uttoxeter for the last race, ha ha who are we kidding.


Why with excellent visibility and a big convoy these birds should haven't made their way home. The answer is BOP, they had a field day turning these pigeons and thats three races out of this liberation site and three stinkers this year. Others flying out of Dunbar that day had excellent returns, I once proposed racing from there and got told its North you cant race from there..If others are consistently getting good racing from there, then why cant we?


This weeks federation winner is David Wood of Uddingston & Dist in the Centre section of the federation. David's winner a blue hen, racing natural to the perch and her sire was bred by my father Jim Wood, he was 3rd centre section 2500 pigeons 10th open fed 6600 pigeons from Otterburn and is of Heremans ceuster x Leo van rijn breeding.

The dam was also bred by my father and also won for me 1st Uddingston club 3rd open Lanarkshire fed young bird duplication race from Ingleton and is of Edd Sittner x Leo van Rijn.


Well done young Dave.
