THE fastest bird into Boston in Saturday’s pigeon race from Newton Aycliffe was to the loft of Tim Appleby, of Boston Central RPC, and was some compensation for his bad luck in previous weeks.

In the rain-affected race, the in-form partnership of John Hardy and John Burt completed a second successive 1-2-3 in Boston District Flying Club.
