I think there is lots of training etc, going on and possible classing, I sit out side a lot and thats all you see is birds passing over sometimes in 2's and 3's but also batches, so they may head back home hopefully,

Why lib them so late on a first toss? You gave them a very small window of daylight to work back if they got lost or were full of flying and overshot. A nice early lib at least they have the time and opportunity to work back the same day.

Why blame BOP on what was an ill timed toss. Maybe your answer lies closer to home ! OMO.

I’ve done it myself before, not that late but an afternoon toss and had a shocker. TonyC on here was the one who drilled it into me that early morning tosses are key with youngens. They will make mistakes and you gotta give them the best opportunity to get back.
