Southern Lizard Canary Club President Stan Bolton had another highly successful day taking Best Lizard, Best Champion, 2nd, 3rd and Fifth Lizards in show. Stan is now in his forty-sixth year of showing Lizard Canaries that covers six decades in which the quality of his birds are undiminished. Best in show was a broken cap Gold Cock; this Canary displayed very dark ground colour and perfect spangles. 2nd best of almost equal standard was a Non cap Gold hen. Two more birds from the Bolton stud were a broken cap Gold Hen and a clear cap gold cock, these birds took 3rd and fifth best in show respectively. Preventing Stan Bolton from a clear sweep at the top table was novice exhibitor Steve Martin, the whole of his team requires noting just for their consistency in colour and feather quality, Steve was duly awarded 4th Best in show with a broken cap gold cock.
Other class winners were: J.Coakley, D Westley, J Record, L. Bridgeman and J Martin who staged best over Year.
But the day was Stan Bolton's who's enthusiasm and zeal for the Lizard Canary continue to amaze; But itís the very quality of his birds that really catches the eye, as it did at the recent Southern Lizard Canary Club show, S.R.Bolton will without doubt go down as one of the all-time greats
