Not long in and I have 3 NE young birds here. 4676, 541 and 4417. They all have phone numbers so I will phone in morning unless anyone wants to contact me tonight on here. I know there was a batch of birds still flying over Brechin nearly half an hour after liberation and there are some still there. There will no doubt be more around Forfar too. Hope you guys get your missing birds back tomorrow

These Y/Bs are more likely belong to fancieirs that have never trained there birds, Thiis will be there 1st time seeing the inside of a crate.
There then released and fly around Brechin lookng for there lofts its all they know .( Its he fanciers fault not the birds)

My doos had 10 tosses and i lost 12 but yes lack of training with some would be one reason ,but my thinking is youngsters need a drop of sun on the basket at lib point nae sun 5 mile away ,they need a chance to get started in good skies then if they get a shower of rain or whatever on way they can deal with that ,breaking up in tae batches some of them never leaving race point and all this at 60 mile it makes ye wonder IMO ???
