Europa Birds now in the loft!

The 3 Rasbull Share Syndicate birds were delivered to the Europa Classic Loft in Cardiff on Sunday morning. Derek Nicholls was at the loft and it was nice being shown around the new facility for the Europa 500 race this year. I still have a bird in the loft from last years young bird race that will compete in the '500'. It will be interesting to see how she does. The birds were looking well and he thinks around the same amount of birds (1,200) will be in this years race comparing entries for this year compared to this time last year.
My 3 race birds had a training toss on Sunday and were liberated about 3 miles from the Europa Loft. We took an hour to get home and the birds were all in the loft on our arrival.
They had a day off training for the 1st time in 8 days today. They were loft flown and allowed to do what they wanted. They flew for 40 minutes and were let in and will be back on the road tomorrow. Another 2 tosses from 27 miles are planned for Tuesday and Wednesday and that will be it then as they head off to the club on Friday. It will soon be here. Little things are being implemented and attention to detail is being strictly applied. I am hoping this makes the difference between 1st Club and an also-ran!
