It's heartbreaking at times Phil, when we lose birds to hawks here in Swansea, I alway think about johnnorm,it's bad here, but for him to get his birds into west wales he really has to run the gauntlet, I'm sure he has trouble even loft flying

Another toss today from 20 miles, they're coming well from this point so we are going to bring them back to 15 miles next week, just to get them to break from that point, just going to drum it into them now

Darren - when I use the worded 'Hawk' I meant RAPTORS in general:- Peregrine, Lanner Falcon, Sparrow hawk, any other flying-killing bird that would attach a racing pigeon - not forgetting the world famous
sh**e hawk or course!

Have a good-un.

we had a good toss this morning this 12 miler is very important its a break point usually they go down the river easy option which is not desirable we want them cutting across country away from the motorway and river and finally today on the 5th toss from this point they got the message ,straight out of the baskets off across the country away from the river and motorway no turning and all in the loft on arrival having demolished their awaiting breakfast  ...excellent another one from the same point tomorrow before we move them up to the last stage of training we don't train past 24 miles first race is 61 miles ...yeah their all a nightmare phil when they come calling atb

Going along nicely Darren, I took mine to work in my car.
I took my work van out, and I'm showing a new driver my route so he can cover me when I go on holiday,
I got to my first drop, opened the van up and Doh! I left them back at my work.
I had to call my boss to let them up, so they had a nice long 1400 yard toss. Nightmare.
When I got to work, they'd put a meat pie and stuck a label over it with a picture of a pigeon and printed Ginsters steak and pigeon pie.
They were all looking out of the window laughing when I went to my boot.

Magic lol! lol! lol!. Now I know why you drive a van Boosey Smile Smile. Saving grace is Wink Wink many a tale like yours could be told I would suggest. Now Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes my tale for the day. Remember a month ago here I mentioned I went bush
(50 k's plus) for my first toss as such. Well I had my one & only report come in from the ones I lost there this week & believe it or not, it was at the brick specialist Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes lol! lol! lol! One brick per pigeon per perch on the floor in his loft Wink Wink & the man I have tossed with at week ends for years as such. 20 x 7 loft & his mob would be 250 odd which were out flying all the time I was there picking up my bird. Mentioned Omega 3/6 Wink Wink along with many other things while there & he lol! lol! lol! & told me in 50 odd years he has never even wormed his pigeons & respritory issues are a none event for him & things like omega 3/6 & the like. he will just leave to the expert types  Smile Smile who I would say for many couldn't even fly over a jam jar Smile Smile compared to his brilliant results from my perspective, that he has had for many years in his little back yard etc. cheers

Had a bad one yesterday, birds beat me home , again, but no one to trap them so when I got there they were sitting on the roof of the house which is unusual,went through the house opened back door and there's a cat sitting on the shed, affraid , took ages to get them in, trying to land on the shed but taking off again and back onto the roof, must have freaked them out, hope they've forgotten about it today

I feel your pain lofty, I've had that happen before, some forget quickly, but I had one nervous on the trap, forever after.
All got their own little quirks.

We've lost 4 so far training, which is pretty good considering the losses down our way, lads are losing 20/30 ybs in a single toss, so we're feeling ok at the minute, sorry it's 5 lost

4 could be OK Smile Smile but then that would depend on how big the pot is etc Lofty Wink Wink. When I picked up my champ Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes my stray from the other day here, I was told of one bloke here recently who lost 40 odd pigeons & had 20 reported from 7 kilometres from home. May just suggest to him lol! lol! lol! to go bush next time like I did, instead of tossing in the suburbs etc. Save on petrol Smile Smile bounce bounce maybe. cheers

we have lost 1 training from the first 12 mile toss the hens were coming back all day long but we lost 4 off the loft which is unusual as they were up and flying for a few weeks when they went ...we had half our ybs away one night after a loft fly ...all part and parcel of the pigeon game
