Had a very welcome call from Tim Atkin of Rugby reporting winning 1st,4th,8th,11th etc NFC Section I from Fougeres on 5th July against more than 600 birds at his first attempt!
Tim has of course had a fantastic record for the last few seasons in the Warwickshire and District Federation and now he continues his winning ways at NFC level.
His first bird was a previous multi performance pigeon bred from one his quite exceptional pairs that have now bred him 10 x 1st prize winners including 5 x 1st Federation winners.
Tim bought the sire of the Section winner in our Blackpool Auction in 2016 and he is a son of Propere 10 (Propere x Athena) bred by Rik Hermans coupled with Stardust a daughter of the famous Di Caprio of Leo Heremans and now owned by Dirk Van Dyke. Dam of the Section winner Tim a daughter of Minerva bred by Rik Hermans.
On the same day, Tim also won the first six positions in the Federation South Section against more than 1000 entries. His first bird being a grandson of Propere Rik.
Many congratulations indeed.
