LANARKSHIRE FEDERATION

Tom Corrie jnr

Kelso in the Scottish borders was our first race point of the young bird season. The decision was taken to race mark on Saturday for a Sunday race due to the poor weather forecast. The 3,100 birds and five Fauldhouse club baskets were away at 08 10 hrs in a light North East wind. Unfortunately, it turned out a "real stinker" of a race with heavy losses recorded throughout the federation. The winning velocities in most clubs around 700s.

Those velocities tell their own story!

 

This week recording 1st west section 1st Open is James McGuire of Burnbank club in Hamilton. James winner is a performance Louella Busschaert lines and was looking at his hen for motivation. This pigeon recorded an excellent velocity and easily won the federation by 84ypm

Well done Jim on a super performance.

 

Well not much more to say about this week, just hope the racing improves!
