just a thought but would greater discussion between FS & the British Softbill Society help ?

Hi Peter / Gary, I seen the show photos on F/book and it was notable the lack of Foreign bird exhibits on view, but as you both said with quite a few Foreign bird keepers in attendance maybe they will exhibit next year. The idea of an All Softbill Show should be encouraged as it draws exhibits from a wider area together as shows in general are a bit thin on the ground at present. It is about four years since I have shown and three since I judged, although I had to decline an engagement this year, it was noticeable then due to a lack of more experience exhibitors showing there was a lack of hands - on knowledge and general know - how both on staging and preparing their exhibits and simple stewarding procedures like ( lifting and laying cages for judging ) although no one could be faulted for enthusiasm and effort, it just needed a few guided words in the correct direction. In all the years of exhibiting I always tried to pass on as much knowledge as possible to other fanciers, it works both ways. As Peter mentioned it does not need to be about the roseate but more of showing our beautiful birds correctly for all to see. James.

I missed out several birds and one very important one...an ALETHE shown by Gary Bralsford....what a stunning character...
BROWN-CHESTED ALETHE I believe...?

Hi, possibly going along the route of a display of species rather than a judged exhibition might appeal to more, open a lot of conservation points about various birds. James

Yes James, thats my view like at Stafford stage your birds not for judging purely for the pleasure.
i was going to do this at this event last Sunday but health issues made it too difficult to put the plan into action and only managed to meet up talk with friends.
