Squeaker (4/8)

  1. Is still resistered to WIJNS Emiel Ernest Claesstraat 27 , 2260 Westerlo 0032 14264589 mobile . 0032 497388955 envisage it is a lier bird but you never know.
  2. Final post (hopefully for today). For this year (as of the time of writing mail) we require to be registered with a vet with loft visits from the vet from next year. Of course it’s a fluid situation .
  3. Apologies my post would be better on channel race update (won’t post twice it twice )
  4. Going forward I can't but imagine we will be back in the good old days soon (without the 7500 birds) in addition to a vet charge next year at the loft .... Each marking station must have a vet present to monitor marking in order to ensure all birds being entered are from a registered loft and vaccinated for PMV and not showing signs of notifiable diseases (Hopefully this will be rescinded next year as otherwise its difficult to imagine viability of numerous marking stations for channel races) ... The convoy must be inspected, along with all paperwork by another vet at the ferry port, who will issue the Export Health Certificate ... When the convoy arrives in France it must go through Border Control. Another vet will check all paperwork and Export Certificate, before 8am . After 8am is €30. Ferries arrive at 6am With one marking station costs have been estimated by various organisations at 1500 .

    First race

    Hi Neil Your being very humble from what I can see from your results on chat . Well done so far this season . Always rubbish to lose a good bird for no reason.
  6. Exactly JCN . Worry about what we can control in the first instance . Consider the pigeons first and foremost . Stop the belligerent preoccupation that we can liberate and expect a perfect race when there is no sun and full low cloud cover . We have a series of issues that mean even on a perfect day we can have have a bad race I.e a bop attack early in the race can blow a race apart but do all we can in our control .
  7. Selecting the option next to the plus on the top right to show new activity helps restrict views to recent active threads and represents how I typically viewed information in the old format. There are 100’s of redundant historical links that are cluttering up the user experience. Folders and links could be amalgamated or archived to present a much cleaner presentation . If presented with no more than 6-7 links it would be beneficial . Furthermore Sticky’s for want if a better word have to be controlled , just hanging around the top of threads for no reason for years mean scrolling down to where there are actually new posts. Upgrades in public forums represent the bigger risk to users staying loyal (all public forums have had this problem).

  11. Happy Birthday Grandad (Bellrock) Have an Amazing day!!! From Paloma ðŸ‘ðŸ½ðŸ‘👄ðŸ‘ðŸŽ
  12. Jack are claiming a Section C or North section prize with the bird .
  13. It’s just a thought and hopefully we do get a Guernsey race … but In the past few weeks Guernsey has been slightly changing rules of entry . At present July 1st is only open to the fully vaccinated. Guernsey is in control of its own borders . While 1st July is the nominal date of free travel from U.K. yesterdays announcement from the U.K. Government to postpone lifting of lockdown by 4 weeks may signal an extension of Guernsey planned dates . (As the U.K. lifting date was very much part of the date proposed by Guernsey i.e it was deliberately set to be after U.K. Lockdown end ). Let’s hope not. The Civil Contingencies Authority in Guernsey have expressed concern re the recent delta variant but have previously stated their vaccination program is going well and should not change . So let’s hope there is no change . As of today Guernsey is reviewing July 1st date (see link) https://covid19.gov.gg/node/778
  14. William (Bill) Hamilton Arbroath RIP Bill was a lifelong member and official of the Arbroath pigeons clubs. (60+years) While growing up in Arbroath I spent a fair bit of time with Bill travelling to Blackpool or to the Louella sales in Edinburgh. During this time Bill was doing well in the shows with some really beautiful Dordin pigeons. Bill always had to best of bloodlines. I still recall to the exact moment the occasion Bill called me up to say he had clocked from Avranches and “I could start to look out nowâ€. RIP Bill
