5 of my pigeons have names. They are: Squirrel Cheeks who went to every race as a young bird last year from Buckingham to Exeter and she also got highly recommended at a pigeon show later on in the year; I have a white pigeon called Tot as I support Tottenham; a blue cock called Ron as he came from Ron Dennett; a black cock called Moweaken; and a red hen called Cilla as she is from Liverpool.
I got a 3rd prize in the club with my red pied cock from Salisbury which I was very happy and proud with. When the racing season finished I took some of my pigeons to Whaley Thorns pigeon show where I got first prize with a young cheq cock and I also won a special prize for having best young bird in the show. At presentation night I got my own special trophy from my club members for all my hard work and dedication to the pigeons.
I also clear the pigeons out, feed them and water them with my Grandad or on my own when he is at work or away on holiday.
I am dedicated and love my pigeons and I will keep learning from my Grandad and also the club members ..."
Tyler Lambert - award-winning young fancier from Shirebrook, Derbyshire
"My name is Tyler Lambert and I am nearly 9 years old. This will be my 2nd year racing with my Grandad Tony Wainwright and my Uncle Brad Mee in Shirebrook Miners Welfare Flying Club which is in the Notts and Derby Border Fed and we also fly in the Midland National.
I now look after the pigeons on my own when my Grandad is at work, I go straight from school to feed my young birds, water them and then lock them up for the night.
During racing season I go to the lofts straight from school on a Friday to pick my birds out to take to the club for basketing. When I get there I help Robbie Bowler the Club Secretary to set up the baskets by putting the water troughs on the baskets and make sure they have water in ready for when the pigeons go in. I then go on the ringer to put rubbers on the pigeons for their race. Once all pigeons are in the baskets I remove all water troughs ready for being loaded on the transporter.
I then sleep at my Grandad's on a Friday night so I am there in the morning when the text comes through to say they are up. I get really excited when it's nearly time for them to come home and I don't take my eyes from the sky. Once they are home it's then time to feed up and get ready to have my clock read off.
