I've had the young birds out for a few weeks now, they are flying for an hour then trapping very well. But they only circle just above rooftops and don't go very far from loft maybe a street over either way. Any ideas why this could be? I'm starting to get very dizzy watching them

Mine do that when the peregrine is about.

It used to be an old fanciers tale that the birds needed wormed if they flew tightly not far from the loft......as I say maybe just a tale.....but if you ain't wormed them then maybe so.ething to think about

I wouldn’t worry if they are flying over an hour and not ranging, if they been doing this 3 weeks or more it would be a respiratory treatment and in the basket

I’d say either hawks about (mine do it and they see it before I do)
Or maybe respiratory
