The Society’s club show held in conjunction with the Budgerigar Society Club Show suffered a drop in entry in both the Rare Variety & Clearbody sections while the AOC section was higher. The winners enjoyed receiving the newly designed certificates kindly designed and donated by John Cosby.
B.S. President Eric Peake judged the Rare Variety section with an entry of 31 (38 in 2015), Tom McCrindle judged the Clearbody section with an entry of 35 (42 in 2015) and Eric Peake judged the Any Other Colour with an entry of 75 (52 in 2015).
Eric Peake judged this section and awarded the adult CC to an Anthracite cock of good style and size and staged in good condition and very steady on the perch, benched to the surprise of many by Richard & Michael Miller. A good coloured English Fallow Green cock of fine marking staged by Tony Clegg was second. Deamonn Mullee benched a large Yellowface Slate hen in third place.
For the second year running Deamonn Mullee captures the young bird CC with a stylish good coloured Slate cock of quality and staged in good condition. This was followed by Tony Clegg with his English Fallow Green cock of fine markings and good body colour. Mick Anzara benched another quality English Fallow Green cock in third place.
