Lanarkshire Federation - Kelso 1

This year’s young bird programme started at Kelso in the Scottish Borders around 62 miles back to the winning loft .The birds were liberated at 07 10 hrs in a light south west wind. The race turned out a real "stinker" with most of the convoy not recording above 900ypm.

This is two years on the trot from Kelso, we have suffered this diabolical racing with youngsters. It’s just not a good race point sitting between the hills. If the peregrines attack them they are not going to get out.

Everyone is their own race controller but be sensible when voting at the next AGM. Racing isn't what it was 20 years ago!  

Unfortunately, we are back at Kelso next week.

The race winner must have came out of the transporter and headed straight home as it is 171 ypm in front of the next bird. The winner was well motivated, sitting on eggs and was racing to the loft of George Truesdale of Chapelhall club.

The Blue W/F hen is from his good friend Mr & Mrs Chadwick lines. The sire was bred by Superdoo of Ayrshire from the same lines. The total sum of his racing team is ten as he thought we wouldn’t be racing and gifted the others away.

George is a new member of Lanarkshire, formerly of the Scottish Midland federation flying as D Truesdale & Sons. This partnership was at the top of their game for many a year and were always hard to beat!. Well done George on a fine performance.
