very interesting hal, I would have thought they circled around the area....maybe a 5 - 6 mile radius of the loft type of thing.

interesting, thanks for posting.... cheers

Very enlightening these tracking bands. But if one looks back, some of the tracking with a harness attachment on the birds showed on occasion, on here, they would fly straight on to a lake then after 5 or 6 miles veer to landward. Occasionally cross a lake. Now how those birds placed in this Fed, do not know. Private info. However, why did they start to cross the lake then veer towards land? Hawks? Flocks of seagulls? Strong winds? Brain farts? It is an interesting topic. GPS tracking. Personally I would not spend the money on the bands/software to find out. If you know how a bird tracks, and it is on line to your loft you may be able to pool the bird in some races. However, you cannot change the birds direction by tracking it. I would be the first to admit that the birds taking the long way around, could possibly be trained from different points to help supplement their natural tendencies to go their own way. Here, I am on the long end. 40 miles farther than the next club mate. From the first Fed member probably 70 miles. Location, location. But hell! Love the disadvantage! If it is a disadvantage? Normal weekend it is. Tough long one can hold my own. More short fast ones than the slow ones. Getting back to tracking birds. I really do not care if the bird has been to the moon or Mars before coming home. Long as it in the top!
