September 29th, 2015

NL1Jim Newton and John Lumb’s GB15 L20546 was fourth in the Young Birds Final Race.

Jim told us: “This is John Lumb’s first venture into One Loft racing, and my third. Last year I entered three birds in the RPRA One Loft and had a pigeon to win the training race and then get 2nd place in Hotspot 2. This year we did much better with 4th in the final race.

“The bird in question, GB15 L20546, was named Betina, a chequer hen with one white secondary flight. She was bred from two black pigeons of Peter Van der Merwe bloodlines and these are parents of Champion Black Jack winner of 6 x 1st club, 11th open LNRC Berwick also Sire of Blue Nunn 3 x 1st club, 1st LNRC Berwick Yearling, 2nd Open LNRC Berwick.”
