Kula lets his birds do the talking

POLISH fancier Marek Kula, who does not speak a lot of English, left his birds to do the talking when he was the star man in Saturday’s pigeon race from Whitley Bay.

He took the first three places in Boston Central RPC with the fastest returns into town.

The appalling weather has been the talking point of the season so far but, on this occasion, the cold north wind helped the pigeons to beat the rain and exceed the mile-a-minute mark.

The in-form partnership of John Hardy and John Burt made it four wins in a row in Boston and District Flying Club.
