The_Challenge_Front_CoverGerald Binks has recently announced that 81 copies of the second edition of his renowned book, The Challenge,  have come to light in the USA and have been shipped back to Tanglewood, Gerald’s home in the UK.

So while we all thought that the best that we could hope for was a second hand copy (first editions in good condition are fetching £250) there is a new window of opportunity.

These are being sold on a first come first served basis and will not last long. Purchasing information can be found on Gerald’s web site www.budgerigar.co.uk and payment can be made by cheque or credit / debit card via PayPal.

Terry Tuxford About the Author:

Terry Tuxford first began breeding budgerigars in 1979 and joined the BS in 1980. He was elevated to Champion in 1985 when he went into partnership with Brian Poole. This partnership is probably one of the longest existing partnerships in the UK hobby today having lasted some 27 years so far and is still going strong. Terry and Brian are also partnered by Yvonne Tuxford who joined the BS in 1990.

Terry demonstrated his penmanship early in his budgerigar career and wrote in the second edition of Budgerigar World. Little did he realise then that in just over 8 year’s time he would become editor following a 20 month apprenticeship with founding editor, Gerald Binks. Terry went on to edit a total of 245 editions up to May 2011.

In 1993 Terry took his Budgerigar Society Judges final examination and was awarded Subsidiary Judge of the Year and has gone on to judge the Budgerigar Society World Show on three occasions as well as many top shows at home and abroad. He is also an accomplished speaker and has been a guest at societies throughout the UK as well as Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and many other European countries.
