Roddy and Colin fly to the heights
A FAT H E R a n d s o n partnership of Roddy and Colin Rae took the honours at a busy meet in Thornton, Fife.
The duo are part of the Aberdeen and District racing pigeon club, based in the city’s Woodside Community Centre.
The birds had a stiff test during the meet due to fog on the East coast.
Even so, the winner, a yearling blue bar cock, covered the 79 miles in 1hr 44mins.
A total of 46 members from six clubs sent 994 birds to the event.
The race started at 11am and the Rae duo electronically timed their bird coming in at 12:44.52.
That gave the victor a velocity of 1,339 yards per minute.
