TOP 10 FANCIERS
Back in the day, Carlisle long distance stalwart Tom Gilbertson and my father and I would have a weekend away in the winter and visit top distance lofts. With this in mind, and knowing that Tom has travelled widely over the years simply to go and see and appreciate long distance pigeons, I asked him to give some thought to putting down on paper those pigeons and fanciers which have made the biggest impression on him. Last time he listed the top 10 birds he has handled. Here, in no particular order, he nominates his top 10 fanciers. - Cameron Stansfield.
