Jim is one of the finest Yorkshire Canary showmen of modern times, having won top awards at most of the leading specialist clubs throughout the UK, including Best in Show at the YCC on two separate occasions in 1984 and 1996.

Jim enjoyed two spells as President of the YCC, and is one of the UK's most travelled fanciers, living in the far North of Scotland, where his nearest competitive exhibition is a few hours journey by car.

Sadly, Jim has given up keeping birds, but still finds time to visit a few of our leading exhibitions, each year.

The quality and characteristics of his birds are remembered by all who saw them, and we still hold a secret wish to coax him back into the hobby, where his input as a top breeder, exhibitor and judge will be greatly appreciated.

Y.C.C. PRESIDENT 1999 & 1987
