Blood Flight's Achievements

In Egg! (Newbie)

In Egg! (Newbie) (1/8)

  1. Well done to Glasgow Fed for a great training toss from Lanark. Only one still to come home out of nine. Really enjoyed a couple of beers watching them fly in.
  2. There's two racing lofts on The Isle of Bute and this will be our first year of proper racing. We will be flying in the Greenock club (Glasgow Fed) It's about 40 minutes on the ferry and then another 30 to the club---so it's not too far, I don't expect either of us will attempt many races this season and certainly don't expect to win anything! The pleasure will hopefully be seeing the birds come home no matter how long they take The Fed is arranging training flights from Thursday so that's a real bonus. The toss from Kilmacolmn went well (10) on the day 1next morning and the last one two days later. Oh and my wife is delighted with her hairdoo---so life is once again worth living!!
  3. Three tosses from the south end of the Island (10) miles ,tomorrow I'll single them up. Wednesday my wife has an appointment at the hairdressers in Greenock so I've kindly said I would drop her off and take the birds for their first mainland toss! Maybe Kilmacolmn ,only half of them (12) they're still feeding. Our first trip to the mainland in a long time and I know it will end in tears ,not because of the pigeons,iit'll be the hairdressers! Onwards and upwards!!
  4. So pleased to win the Bonnington pair. The several Chris kindly gave me last year are turning out just like his dad gave me as a teenager 50 years ago,! ----Solid colours---Solid characters! Really looking forward to trying them out this season. Well done on an excellent auction!, Cheque in tomorrows post. Graham McArthur
  5. Lot 7. £50 please Thanks
  6. Returning to the sport after several years I was delighted some things hadn't changed-----The efficiency,enthusiasm and friendliness of Linda and her staff at the SHU. Linda has been a great ambassador for Pigeon Racing in Scotland and the work she put into compiling the excellent 'Flights of Memory' will surely cement her legacy. Best of wishes for the future Linda Yours in Sport Graham
  7. Excellent videos---and to race so well into Oban is exceptional! It should certainly encourage other fanciers living in the'Wild West'---Great Stuff !
  8. Around early March(all 12 pairs) When the local Rooks start building their nests. I also often wonder how many fanciers still race their birds on the natural system?
  9. Another good story! No negative stuff---just good pigeon talk .Keep up the good work Peter!
  10. One of the things i'd forgotten when I took up the birds again was how decent and geneorus pigeon people still are. I bid for one youngster at the shu auction from Tam Richardson and today four have arrived. Four cracking Blues , and the extra mile he went to get them to me won't be forgotten!!!!
  11. About 50 years ago my brother and I were lucky to get two birds from Stan Bonnington.I remember my dad driving us to Haddington and waiting outside smoking until two hours later wee came out with two lovely youngsters and they did us so proud! Formed a great loft He was a gentleman and so is his son Chris, Thanks to this Auction I will soon be able to relive these memories with the Highgate Strain!
