The Harker’s “Bird of The Year” 2016 competition is now open for entries. A perennial favourite on the bird fancier’s calendar, entries are invited from racing pigeon owners from the UK. There are two entry categories, split as 300 miles plus and those racing under 300 miles. The prizes are bigger and better this year with three prizes in each category the winner, a runner up and a third place and new for 2016, every entrant will receive a 20% off Harkers voucher and free product sample.
