    stray birds

    Had a bird return Sunday evening, had been missing since snfc Newbury the week before, he had a note with a phone No. Rang the guy and told me the bird arrived at his loft in Amble on the evening of the race, he fed and watered the bird but he wouldnt leave so keep him isolated for the week then tossed him from Eyemouth on Sunday afternoon. It's always good to know where they've been. When I was a fisherman we got many GB rung strays on the boat and I always put a note on their legs and had many phonecalls of thanks and also amazement when they knew their birds had in some cases landed on the boat around 100 miles East of Shetland ??) Many thanks to Mr Spears of Amble for looking after my bird ;)

  7. We are using UNIKON professional (version 2.85) do we upgrade to 2.86? Got letter last week from UNIKON about upgrade but this was for UNIKON CHAMP, it didn't mention anything about upgrade for Unikon professional, but see there is upgrade available for professional to v2.86 on www.pigeon-ets.com. Do we take it or not?
