Midland Budgerigar Association - November 2021
Report by Trevor Terheege

Due to the COVID outbreak very little has been happening within the Association. As the situation eased in Spring 2021 the committee had mixed views about opening things up. Some felt that we should not do anything in 2021 whilst others were keen to have some shows. Eventually it was decided that we would not hold our Open Show but would hold our Specialist & Rare Variety Show and the 2020 Young Bird Show on the same weekend.

The 2020 Young Bird Show was held on Saturday, 23rd October 2021 with Keith Leedham as the main panel judge and with Steve Rich as a subsidiary judge. We were one of only two Area Societies that took the option to run this show which was subsidised by the BS. It was a good to meet up with fellow exhibitors after such a long break and the show was well supported with well over 100 birds entered resulting in 97 birds being benched.

A & D Woan took the honours for Best Young Bird and Best Young Bird Opposite Sex. Best Intermediate Young Bird went to Mick Woodfield and Best Novice Young Bird was won by Oliver & Simon Williams.

The Specialist & Rare Variety Gold show which was held on the Sunday also received better support than we expected with 175 birds being benched. The judges on the day were Janice & Ghalib Al-Nasser with Steve Rich (subsidiary judge)

The standard of the birds benched was very good with nine Champion exhibitors, one Intermediate and two Novices.
