Pigeon winners.jpgMORRIS and Wayne McLuckie collected their fifth win in the West Cumbria Amalgamation at the week-end.

A yearling, dark chequer hen on the roundabout system trapped like a stone to edge a really tight finish to the race from Appleton.

The birds had been liberated at 10-45am in a west north west win and the McLuckie’s clocked the winner at their Workington loft at 12-58pm.

It was desperately tight and the first three were separated by the second decimal point.

The winner is a Lambrecht/Wildemeersch, two families the brothers obtained from Johnny Gilbert of Tamworth and have recently been crossing together.

It was a good test, too, for the Cumbrian birds flying just under 100 miles in those wind conditions.

The Amalgamation birds are back at Appleton this week-end.
