Bellerby John anc 17 with his bird and gun dogs

John Bellerby Provisionsal 1st Open from Vire.

After a one day holdover the birds were released into sunny skies and a good race was expected which proved to be the case.

The 4000 plus entry of Vire birds were liberated at 6.15am in a no wind conditions which turned more Westerly enroute. The provisional leader of the pack on this occasion is the Spalding loft of popular fancier John Bellerby with a velocity of 1403. Looking at the leader board in the top 15 placings are are no less than 7 sections. To sum up a good race with excellent returns being reported.


Mark Williamson Provisional 1st Open from Bordeaux.

From the ‘Blue Ribbon’ race from Bordeaux an excellent bird looks likely to take the top prize for Ashbourne’s Mark Williamson with a velocity of 1256. I will report more fully in a few days on the many excellent performances in these two events.
