Congratulations and thanks to all who benched birds at our 2017 Open Show, however we only managed to bench 291 budgerigars therefore missing the target of 300 for Silver Championship. We belief out show date clashed with the World show the week previous and the same date as the nearby Stafford show. We are hoping for a better turnout at next years show so that we can retain the BS Silver Championship status.

Apologies to some winners - we didn't have successful photos of all birds, however, if you have photos please contact us for publication, thanks.
