Training in the Europa

The birds were again trained from 35 miles and the syndicate birds were 30th, 165th, 174th and 579th. Once again it was 'Smoking Bullet' who was our first bird home and he now has 13 top 50 finishes from the 22 races to date!

In our own loft the youngsters have been exercising around the loft the last few days. I think I have decided to sacrifice the majority of the racing this season and concentrate getting the team of 48 (thats every youngster in the loft) up and running in time to be entered into the last comeback race of the season. My main aim is to form a team for next year.

I have 2 cocks left from racing old birds and have had another return today after being lost 2 months ago from Lilliers in France. He is in super condition so obviously been in somewhere! So that is 3 cocks for the widowhood system next year before they are topped up with the best cocks from this years young birds.
