Just to say the two Ayrshire Clubs Land O' Burns and North Ayrshire enjoyed healthy and successful meetings in recent weeks.Last night at the North Ayrshire meeting I placed the birds contesting for Best Bird of 2011 and a separate contest. for Best Young Bird. Best Bird in both cases went to Alistair McPhail of the Wilson/ McPhail partnership,with quality birds,the adult an outstanding grey green cock,and the young bird a promising young lightgreen cock not quite in show condition so fellow fanciers beware!
The Land O' Burns evening two weeks ago was a most enjoyable event first half was a trial of observation so to speak Jim Mc Geehan displayed a show cage containing a budgerigar,our members were allowed an alloted time to study bird and cage then indicate as many faults and defects as they could observe.this proved most entertaining and testing, the other part of the evenings happening was a young bird contest judged by Iinda Eddie Robertson won with a lightgreen cock, W Peacock was second with a greygreen cock and third with a skyblue cock.

Good to hear that Aliatair is showing and producing quality birds once again. He has been missed from the show scene these past two or three years. Look forward to seeing the birds from the partnership on the show bench.
