The Welsh North Road Federation - 23-09-21

The Welsh North Road Federation

The Welsh North Road federation held its third young bird race of the 2021 season for its third visit to the Ludlow race course in a row before moving on up north onto some distance giving the young birds some good educational confidence starter races.  So on the 8/8/21 at 14:00pm the head convoyer Mr Humphries liberated the federation birds into south west wind.

The top ten positions in the federation were as follows and it was two Welsh Wizards in control of the top ten working their magic one being Anthony Buttigieg who is no stranger to the winning seat for a number of years now and starting off with some very impressive north road performances in his career before flying and changing to the popular east to west route but it’s certainly nice to be back home in the north road lane Anthony says after successful flying carers on both routes and the next candidate in the shakeup is of Chris McCarthy which this is his first season in racing pigeons and he’s as keen as can be with working shifts with Cardiff city council and any spare time he puts into his birds and he’s no mug as he’s done his homework in obtaining some quality tools to start off with to get the job done right the first time.  He’s certainly one to look out for hopefully for the future to the result now.
