Bedhampton Open - 21st June 2014

 

LANARKSHIRE FEDERATION

Tom Corrie

Bedhampton Open - 21st June 2014

 

Bedhampton is a former village, and now suburb, located in the Borough of Havant, Hampshire, southern England. It is located at the northern end of Langstone Harbour and at the foot of the eastern end of Portsdown Hill. The flying distance back into Central Scotland is around the 365 miles.

The birds were liberated 0600 in a light west wind turning strong north-west en route. A challenging race was on the cards for the 700 birds and that's what we got with the birds down in the 1,000 ypm (not a lot) with most having a much tougher flight. Another very erratic race with returns around 50%.

The brilliant season for John Barr, Airdrie Dist continues with top performances, his first season in the Lanarkshire. Winning this prestigious race is a cracking way to introduce himself. Its doesn't matter how difficult the race, John has been to the forefront of the federation with multiple federation prizes most weeks. Brilliant racing. Unfortunately I haven't yet got a photo of John and his set up, but hopefully he will accept a loft report later in the year. Well done John.
