Robert Buysse is from Ertvelde, Belgium, and according to knowledgeable commentators upon the sport he is one of the Robert Buysse is from Ertvelde, Belgium, and according to knowledgeable commentators upon the sport he is one of the
leading racers of the long distance in Europe at the time of writing. His father who died in 1994 had pigeons from 1930 and this was Roberts way into the sport for he flew with his father prior to the latter's demise. From original purchases from the lofts of
Desmet Matthys and Norman plus Van Quickborne and Derweduwen, Buysse has formed a strain of long distance and
marathon type birds with the necessary basic ingredient of balance. As a person committed to the development of his strain
Robert Buysse at all times is always seeking quality not quantity.

With many successes at national and international races a Buysse bird is hard to beat in his native country especially between distances of 600 and 1,100kms. Amongst his triumphs are 3rd International Barcelona against 24,115 birds; 1st Bordeaux 1998; 46th Barcelona 2000; 39th Perpignan International 2001; 2nd Castres 2002; 2nd Pau 2002; 39th San Sebastian 2002; 3rd Pau International 2002; 36th National & 84th International Barcelona 2003; the loft also received the Euro Diamond Pigeon Award for 2003; the loft recorded 18e West European Super Marathon in 2004. It should also be noted that his 'Mister Europe' was the Long Distance Champion of Europe in 1991.

Like many from the European mainland the stock birds are paired up around the middle part of December and are permitted to rear three or four rounds. The squeakers are left to grow and develop and if raced they are not entered into races with any serious intent. Whereas the racers are paired around the middle of February and after rearing one youngster they like many other fanciers allow their racers to go down on eggs again prior to being placed on wodowerhood. They are released twice each day to fly around the loft and after rearing the first squeakers they are road trained a few times personally before entering the programme of club training. Buysse ensures that his birds receive the best of feeding and feeds his racers with a breeding mixture most of the year but advocates barley feeding after their return from racing for a couple of days. As for secrets Buysses total committment to the sport ensures its own rewards as his record confirms.Like many from the European mainland the stock birds are paired up around the middle part of December and are permitted to rear three or four rounds.

As a relatively young man Robert Buysse, God willing, has the time required to ensure that his strain will make an important contribution to the sport of distance racing in the new millennium. In any case what he has achieved so far in the sport is quite impressive and with consistency may etch his name in the annals of pigeon racing at the long and marathon distances.
