The birds have been exercising really well the last two nights and flying for an hour each night. I am very happy with them at present. I hope to give them a training toss tomorrow from 27 miles and then an hour exercise afterwards.
The race on Saturday has given me some doubts with a strong North wind expected. It is the worst wind I could possibly hope for. If it stays in that direction and the strength is what has been predicted my birds will not stand a chance which is a shame as they are in super form. I would have loved a south wind this week and really felt they would have a great chance. I can only keep my fingers crossed now and hope the forecast is a little misjudged.
Breeding is continue to progress nicely with 30 weaned off, 14 in the nest and 11 eggs in the nest.
