Talke Pits Open Softbill Show

14th Dec 2014

 


Had a great day out at Talke Pits open softbill show!

 

As usual a relaxed, friendly & informative atmosphere with some excellent softbills to be seen.

 

I think @ 90 birds were benched - probably the best turnout you will see anywhere this season!

 

  • Best Softbill, Best Champion Softbill, Best Small Softbill:  Alan Lythe with a super Lesser Whitethroat - Well done Alan!
  • Best Novice Softbill, Marty P - Very nice Redstart - Well done Marty!
  • Best Large Softbill, Best Colour Variant Softbill; John Green - Very good Blue Blackbird
  • Best Normal Large Softbill; Robb Brown - Songthrush  ( I was very pleased with this - best from a class of 9 songies & some good normal blackbirds as well)
  • Best CYB Small Softbill;  Alan Lythe - Blackcap Hen
  • Best CYB Softbill;  Mark Milligan - Very nice Ring Ouzel
  • Best CYB Colour Variant Softbill: Ecka Booton - Cinnamon Songthrush
  • Best CYB Novice Softbill - Sie Vine - with a very steady starling

 

A huge variety of birds on show - a credit to all who took part 

 

A very good show
