All flying and ready to go!

The last of my youngsters are now flying for an hour at a time and grouping very well. That now gives me 46 youngsters in total plus 3 yearling cocks who have raced this season. All will now been trained in the basket and I will be aiming at the 10th September for their first race. Some of the older youngsters are falling to bits with the moult but all will have a race this year.

The Europa birds trained today from 40 miles and it turned out to be a funny one for our syndicate birds. '07' was again our leading bird and she has now overtaken '13' as the bird I fancy for the best position in the final race. '07' was 39th today and the others were in a group of around 30 that arrived a long time after the main group. Their positions were 462nd, 466th and 485th! (Think they must have been sight seeing or stopped off for a beef burger or something!)
