TWO Polish members of Boston Central Racing Pigeon Club are keeping the established stars on their toes this summer.

Marek Kula has been a winner in the past and featured in the result at 10th and 11th in the third young bird race from Bubwith, but it is his young colleague, and interpreter, D Pelka who is setting the pace.

He won Saturday’s race and was also third, fourth, ninth and 12th.

Squeezing into second place was last week’s winning partnership of Carl Upsall and Trevor Frost.

The fastest pigeon into Boston, however, was the one that won Boston and District Flying Club, and belonged to Russ and Denise Skinner – also first past the post last week.

The race should have been from Newton Aycliffe, but bad weather on Saturday in the north of the country dictated the decision to make it from a shorter distance.

Club results from Bubwith III were:
