Jim Emerton: Articles, Reports, Thoughts & Experiences

 

My life of 70 years is a celebration of all the flora that I have encountered in so many habitats on planet earth. A kaleidoscope of colours, species and forms has charmed my tiny little mind, from the opium poppy in Afghanistan to the Edelweiss in Switzerland. We need to conserve wildflower meadows with absolute urgency, along with all the flora and fauna of the natural world, in spite of the ugly face of industrial capitalism, which along with man is a blot on the landscape! Jim Emerton.

 

We have generations of corvids, sparrows, ringdoves, blackies, feral pigeons, tits and others. They are an avian ecosystem, congregating and competing for food. I love them more dearly than man, as they settle around the garden chair. Soon the opium poppies will open their nectaries to many species of bumble bee. The sound of them is so lovely, and I touch them as they settle into the flowers. My garden is the paradise of my poetic sensibility. This niche is superior to any concrete jungle in the world, as it induces quiet contemplation. Men find themselves in the beauty of nature. Jim Emerton.

 

Attempts may be made, under the jurisdiction of the BICC this year. It can be flown in race time, yet timings will be very rare due to the prevailing conditions, of wind, location, condition of bird by the fancier etc. Success remains one of the final frontiers of global pigeon racing. As a visionary my Belief Trophy -an antique, solid silver salver awaits the hero and his bird. Good luck to all those who would seek to venture beyond 500 miles. Barcelona will soon be here; I speak of the greatest race on planet earth! Jim Emerton.
