ENTHUSIAST Terry Sayers has been breeding exotic birds since he was 11 years old.
And with more than 60 years of expertise under his belt, the 74-year-old has won a number of accolades for his prized pets over the years.
But Terry says his achievement of scooping all of the rosettes at the Welsh National Exhibition of Show Birds is one of the best so far.
‘When I was nine years old, I got my first bird,’ said Terry.
‘My first was a lovebird and then a budgerigar.
‘My mum brought me up on her own so I have built this up on my own.’
The former vehicle engineer joined his first caged bird society as a child in Cobham, Surrey, where he grew up.
From there, he became more and more interested in the hobby.
