Walter the reason that so many birds got reported in Ireland on the race you refere to was because theyvwere liberated in a strong east wind, winds were reported upto 50mph on the flight path.

Have seen myself races in the past from Newark same distance as Uttoxeter, pigeons were liberated in no wind clear blue skies and many pigeons still getting reported in Ireland.

Always seems to be that when we get over the 200 mile mark that racing becomes erratic, perhaps this maybe down to the orientation of PART of the convoy becoming weaker, as they say distance kills. (Even at 220 miles)

Got to agree with you abt being weaker Gareth, todays pigeons are far more mature and should be raced further as youngsters to test their weaknesses. You will find that your 220 mile statement kicks in from the coast as yearlings a little bit, but not as bad as the 220 mile stage, from birds that have hardly been raced as youngsters. I see it here as well from the fanciers that hardly race youngsters and wonder how they're all lost after 6 weeks as yearlings. Also the 98% rule inevitably will kick in too. Also I canny recall many East Winds at 50mph!!!No even S/E with clear blue skies where you will get losses over shooting the loft.

i dont disagree with you guys but this is not a new thing been happening for years some pigeons just cant handle a south east wind from any race point even your timers are puggled when they come landing on places they never did before ive won the fed section 8 times in east winds but with uttoxeter is as if the birds dont have time to sort them selves out in a south east and imo john its different down the east side because the east birds have to break farther down the road giving them time to get back on there line of flight imo east winds never a true race watch who wins your races in east winds offten its the the guys that win a race every 5 or 10 years then east wind bang out the blue and flying like a coo so and sos in north east is a different ball game takes a good pigeon but east or south east you could time a fantail top the fed and it goes down the next week all east and south easts should be banned i hate them lol but as is the norm in our sport theres always someone has a good race but like i said its jmo and we all have our likes and dislikes good luck to you all guys no matter what the wind
