PostSubject: 2015 mistakes   Mon Dec 28, 2015 11:43 pm

What mistakes have members made in 2015 that they won't be doing in 2016.

I've made several but my worst one was treating the outside of the loft with wood preserver, then doing the inside as well to make it look nice when my loft was built.
What a t**t, it's caused me massive problems with mould, I'm currently in the process of sanding the whole inside of the loft, but being the professional plonker that I am, I gave it 2 coats.

Where it's rough wood, the bloom stick to the walls.
Then when we have a few wet days, and their is moisture in the air the bloom gets damp. The wall can't absorb any moisture so mould forms.

We learn by our mistakes. pale

My biggest mistake was pushing my best bird too hard, and losing him, won't be doing that next season.

Mistake one. Young birds moulting last half of season. Missed a lot of races.Dark system 2016.
Mistake two. Obs to the nest. Widowhood this year. Simpler.
Mistake three. Did not send them often enough. So have too many. So they go every week if fit.
