This week takes us to Catterick in North Yorkshire, England which is around 139 miles back to Lanarkshire in Central Scotland.Catterick is a village which is associated with Catterick Garrison and a very nice race course.A really nice part of the country!

Unfortunately due to forecast of heavy showers on Saturday we took the decision to race mark on the Saturday for a Sunday race.Sunday was a cracking day with bright sunshine;.The convoy of 6,250 birds and 16 baskets from Fauldhouse club were liberated at 07 30 hrs in a light west wind which was changeable on route. 

The winner was timed at 10 16hrs for the 139 miles,velocity of 1477 ypm closely followed by 1476 ypm by its loft mate.1st & 2nd Open Federation is  Kevin Docherty of  Uddingston& Dist club .

Kevin's winners are two widowhood cocks, who had four short training flights from Glasgow before the racing season.They have competed in all four races in the federation programme this season.The winner beating a terrific convoy of 6,250 birds.Is a check cock  from Kevin's own Faulkineer lines that were obtained from a Welsh friend. This pigeon was raced two races as youngster and as a yearling came home a week late due to hawk attack .The 2nd Open Federation winner is also a check cock bred by his brother Mick Docherty ,Port Talbot ,South Wales.He has been a very consistent racer already being 2nd club and 7th section Federation.Thanks to Kevin for the information and again well done on a terrific result with the "Welsh connection".  
This weather was great, but with the  moon and sun in the sky historically causing issues with pigeons homing ability. A number of birds didn't home!
