Because last week’s races were cancelled, we flew an extra middle-distance race today. The intention was to fly a race from around 400 km, but due to a minor accident en route it was decided to go no further then Loan (327 km).
The weather conditions were not ideal for the pigeons, underscored by the returns from Barcelona released some 27 hours earlier, at this time only one pigeon has been reported in northern France.
After our first pigeon clocked it took 8 minutes for the next one to time in, after which the birds came regularly. A half hour after our first, we had 24 of the 36 shipped, in the clock.
