The New North Road Amalgamation (2Bird)
The Amalgamation’s 2 bird operated its second race of the season from Thornton Park in Fife Scotland, home of the famous Scottish pigeon scribe of Joe Murphy. As always the entered two birds are liberated separately 15 minutes after the main Amalgamation birds short or far away all the time this being the 230 plus miles point for most who entered the race. We would like to thank Thornton Hibs Football club and local pigeon fancier Joe Murphy who made us most welcome at the site and aided access to the site and also to Joe who helped out with the two liberations.
