This afternoon the birds went on their first training toss of the year. 13 hens and 8 cocks (9 untrained birds in total) were taken 16 miles and cocks and hens liberated separately. The birds arrived home with the exception of 1 hen who arrived late. I will look to give them another toss tomorrow from the same spot before increasing the distance to 24 miles on Sunday. I am unsure about next week for training but they will definitely go next weekend again when I will look to get them out to 50 miles with a joint liberation with other fanciers - the first race is just the week after!
