  2. I wouldn't bet on it I've went for strays last 3 years only to be told to throw it up or its no good to me just do the needful etc. I got about 15 strays brought up from West Durham amal on Saturday paid to get them brought up out of my own pocket started to phone owners 3have told me to throw them up have saved them £45 for a courier and that's the response. They will go through the stray centre now and they will pay through their feds. I personally would pay £10 or £20 to get my birds up from England by the likes of Freddie but others are not so willing. How many times do you see can anybody get birds closer and lib them they don't want to pay they want everyone to do all the running about. Sorry this is a rant but I have been there so many times you wouldn't believe it. John Pryce went down to Newcastle area last year and picked up a s**t load of strays only to be told the same he phoned me i went and picked them up and returned them through the SHU STRAY CENTRE John done about a 14 hour shift to get the birds back plus his fuel well out of pocket. I'm sorry but that's the bare facts Cheers Davie NW Fed not far away from you they will pick up stray S
  3. U totally agree unfortunately I get phone calls every year with the same thing did my bird have an ETS ring on when it was handed into the stray centre. I don't take a note of what has or hasn't got an ETS ring. The only thing I can assure everyone is that they are not removed at the stray centre. Ask any of the men that pick up the strays i have given them the life ring and ETS ring of any bird that didn't make it to be returned to the owner.

  6. Arty we used to train from soutra then take the young birds to Lauder with no problems. A couple of years ago we stopped training there as the birds were taking for ever to come home and we were experiencing losses. The only thing that we could put it down to was they had put up the wind turbines. We watch the young birds flying back and forwards at the wind turbines before they would clear them. I have read all the comments put up on your post. We train with fanciers that regularly top the Central Fed and they have experienced the same problems so weak sick diseased untrained birds in my opinion may have a small part in the losses. But we have experienced losses and birds returning days later from lauder your race point last week. I have several AF & DF birds in the stray centre and I can assure you they are in perfect health with one of two flown out they will be returned to their owners tomorrow. The ones in good condition and appear to be healthy, why did they not make it home?. were the up too early? We're they disoriented by the turbines? Or are they stupid this is only my opinion and my club mates have experience the same. Cheers Davie

  11. I got kingdom birds in last night and there is one with a phone number ring was too late to phone last night will phone it today they will get picked up tomorrow.
  12. Hi folks This is the first week i have birds in the stray centre please please if you have birds with plain SU rings or GB NL NEHU NWHU WHU PUT A PHONE NUMBER RING OR A WING STAMP OR SOME FORM OF IDENTIFICATION ON YER DOOS it maKes it so much easier for me to get your Y/Bs back to you the same week. It was passed at the SHU that all Y/bs should be WING stamped or phone no rings on if not they should not be allowed to race. RPRA members should WING STAMP all their birds A RPRA RULE. I have just reported 17 birds not WING stamped or any form of ID plain SU and GB. If these birds had identification they could possibly have been returned to their owners before being sent to the stray centre. I was asked to verify 2 pigeons that scored at the last national Roye. Mark Doran of Broxburn was 1st section D 8th Open with a pigeon that was handed into Mrs Walton at the Bishop Auckland stray centre i arranged to get the bird back to the SHU stray centre at Broxburn and gave it back to Mark last year. His 3rd section D 14th Open was also returned to Mark via the SHU stray centre as a Y/B . So all you pigeon fanciers that don't want birds from the stray centre because they are full of diseases or are never any good after they have went in else where think again. Cheers Davie
