A few alterations to the outside of the main loft (PVC cladding) and new trapping system, I already finished off the Yb loft earlier in the year and looks really well.

do any members have any plans for the Winter . anybody bringing in a new strain or changes to the loft ?? :pidge:

recently started racing y/b this year after 3 years convoying birds had to come home to no one being there yet still managed to win a few races with help of ETS and one race taking first eight positions with my van loons but I have introduced some dirk van den buicks to cross with them for next year as my van loons are getting too closely bred in my opinion and they really crossed well when I crossed them a few years back so fingers crossed for next season already training late breds from last year and this year on good days
