Europa birds now in the loft!
Today I took the 5 syndicate birds down to the Europa Classic loft in Cardiff. I spent around an hour chatting and being shown around by Mark Williams (the new loft manager) and must say how impressed I was with the loft and birds. The old birds especially were in fantastic condition and were that tame were eating out of Marks hand! They have had around 200 birds so far delivered to the loft. He was saying he has taken a lot of criticism since taking over but is in the process of changing quite a few things that fanciers have been unhappy about in the past. The birds were vaccinated on arrival and put in a secure section where they will remain for around 10 days. They had there rings covered up on arrival and this is something which will increase fairness. I was impressed with what Mark had to say and hope he has a good season with the syndicate birds doing especially well!!
