Well done to the convoyer. The birds were in great condition despite six nights in the baskets. And also well done to the race control team. A thankless task and some unjustified comments on here before the race. Congratulations on a job well done.

I have to put my hand up here and say I was wrong never in my life have I seen a pigeon fly 520 miles and return in the condition it left the loft. I can honestly say that my first pigeon could've flown Roye AGAIN. No, exaggeration here, maybe we are missing something that could benefit the pigeons in future long distance races?

Well after reading through all the coloursrs of sh** post on types of feed posts doom and gloom pre race I think it be best to find out what they did feed the birds this time and stick to it as it looks one of the better races they have been in a while. New recipe Bamford all rounder and a 6 day holdover.!!!!!!!!!

Have to agree, birds have returned in the best condition I can ever remember. First class job and a credit to all concerned.

I think the only thing missing previously has been the weather, given the right conditions the birds will home if sent in good condition.

Previous races this year have suffered with complicated weather patterns dictating mixed returns, as like last year good weather usually results in good returns.

Very difficult conditions for the controllers this year and they do not need constant negative comments, some appear to forget that these guys also have birds

in the baskets.

Well Done!

Could the warm weather France and southern half of the UK.Have anything to do with the conditioning of the birds in baskets?

The majority of fanciers who got birds from this race all speak about it ?

I am sure I read a book a few years ago mention fanciers putting hens essentially in a hot shed or garage for a day or two.To bring them into condition for certain races.It also said the birds were damp when handled as if sweating? Once removed outside .
