Tom Corrie jnr

This week takes us to Catterick in North Yorkshire, around 137 miles back into Central Scotland. The weather was unpredictable, and our race controller decided to race on Sunday. The weather at the race point was excellent with a light south west wind turning north west on route. The liberation of 1700 birds and 8 Fauldhouse baskets at 06 50hrs. Report was the birds didn't clear well from the race point and the race turned out a "real stinker" with the winning velocity in the 900ypm and some clubs were won in the 700ypm. These velocities speak for themselves with returns that can only be described as horrendous!


What happened ? well it wasn't the weather as it was clear all the way home! On speaking with a fancier, he had a pigeon at the race reported 100 miles south of the liberation! Whatever happened it’s the end of the season for a lot of  fanciers who have endured one of our most difficult young bird programmes ever recorded. With the weather absolutely terrible over the next few days the birds had little chance of returning.


The young bird racing is becoming a nightmare and we have to come up with a programme that protects our future of our sports.

Well enough said about that race!


Congratulations to this week’s winner Jim Moffat, who resides in Stepps Glasgow and who fly’s in the Uddigston & Dist club.

Jim's winner is a Vad en poel from a hen gifted by Wullie Strang and the sire out of John Duthie of Dundee lines.

The winning check hen has had every race and had two 30 miles training flights this week and got to see her mate before basketing.

Well done to Jim who wins 1st Centre section 1st Open 1700 birds. This is a cracking way done in the wild west !
