Burton S D Fed 07-08-18

BURTON & SOUTH DERBYSHIRE FEDERATION.

 

MR & MRS HASLAM & SON OF THE BULLS HEAD TAKE 1ST FED OUT OF HULLAVINGTON (2).

 

Saturday July 28th saw 46 members send 757 birds to Hullavington (2), another disappointing entry, the strong winds forecast and the bad forecast for the following day didn’t give the members much encouragement?

The birds were liberated at 08-00 into a strong south west wind and congratulations go to Mr & Mrs k Haslam & Son of the Bulls Head, they took advantage of the strong tail wind to take 1st fed on 1943 with a blue cock, they had two more in 17th and 18th spots. They flew close on 20 miles further than the majority of the fed top 20. 

  A great performance by James Horne of the Nelson with his Stefaan Lambrechts,  which originate from the Northern Ireland lofts of Gibb & Byrne. James had 13 birds arrive together, over the pad in 18 seconds, to take 2nd to 13th fed and 16th fed, with velocities ranging from 1897.4 to 1890, a performance to remember James, well done again. 

 Two other lofts got in the fed top 20, C Murfin of Swadlincote Town and Gerald Wood of Appleby.
