Rain stopping play!

This weather is ridiculous! It has been raining here in Brecon for the past 4 days so the birds have barely been out of the loft let alone in the basket. It is a real problem at the moment but I guess it is affecting everyone and just us. On the plus side we have now got both teams grouping very well and flying out together. Hopefully when the nicer weather arrives we can then push the two teams on quite quickly.
I have been reading on the Somerset One Loft race website and see 3 of our 4 entries are still in the loft. It is always a bit of lottery to see which birds come through the settling, breaking in, flyway and illness periods when going to the loft. We have fared ok, but shame the 4th bird has gone. I spoke with Terry (Loft Manager) and he said he thinks the missing bird was one of 60 odd birds he lost when they had a flyway a few weeks back. We have 3 of the 4 entries still in the Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race and I believe all 4 entries still in the Welsh Classic Challenge. I will update on all these races as and when I get news. All information regarding the last two events can be found on
