Best race of the YB season out of Honiton, sees Davis, Wright & Sons take 1st fed as Swadlincote Town dominate.

Saturday September 11th saw 38 members from 8 clubs enter 488 birds for the penultimate race of the season from Honiton. For a change the birds had a westerly wind, which helped them considerably, and there’s no doubting this was the best race of the young bird season, with most lofts having 100% returns.  Alys cut the strings at 10:00, and unsurprisingly the leading birds were found in the south Derbyshire lofts, with the leading birds exceeding 1600ypm.

Congratulations to Davis, Wright & Sons of Swadlincote Town on topping the fed on 1635 with a cheq pied hen out of “Best Kittel Junior” lines x Staf van Reet. They followed up by taking 10th fed on 1624 with a blue hen; her sire was a son of “31616” x with a daughter of Tony & Lee Painters “Van Persie”. Her dam is one of their original Staf van Reet; she is a multiple prize winner and dam of many winners.
