We have two races again with weekend.

I wasn't going to send the y/b's because it has been too hot for them, but today and the rest of the week is going to be cooler - still 20 -22 degrees C, but at least not 39 c as it was yesterday. Too hot for me, let alone the birds.

So young bird race from same pace as last time - around 95 miles - and

Cholet again with O/B's - 140 miles. This will be a good 'pipe opener' for the old birds because next week the will be at a distance of 425 k - the furthest they have been up to now.

Basketing tonight as always with this new club.

What about you guys - what's on the menu this weekend? (apart from beer)lol

Weather forecast says it should be a bit cooler at the weekend - I do hope so and we don't get thunder until Sunday.

We could do with it to clear the air though.

ATB everyone.

In the end we only sent 10 birds to Cholet - 7 cocks and 3 hens. Our race hens have started laying eggs.

We didn't sent any young birds this weekend -

As you may know, we basket on a Thursday night and I thought that two nights and a day and a half in a basket for young birds in temperatures of over 30 degrees is TOO much for the little things.

I hope everyone will do well this weekend - we are trusting for a great result - I want beat this one guy in our new club, before we go back to the UK.

For those of you that didn't know - we have at last found a buyer for our French property!

Our Old Birds were up at 7:45 local time from Cholet.

Only 3 hours flying on an average day. Today we have a slight head wind.
