Bologna 2016: the judge’s report

My guest contributor this week is Joe Coakley who, in his own words, felt ‘very privileged’ to judge the Lizard canary section at the Bologna Show in 2016.  I think it will be obvious from the photographs (which Joe also provided) why he was so enthusiastic about the quality of the birds on display.  Joe […]...
