I was 10th club.
Got 8 out of 10 back so far, but my best cock came home hawked, only 4 tail flights left, hardly any secondaries left on either wing and an open wound above he's right leg.
I don't know how he made it home, he looks pretty poorly, I hope nothing's punctured internally.
The wound smells bad so I've given him a salt bath and put him in a basket indoors.

Hi Bossey
Firstly - well done on your 10th place.

What a shame about your cock ripped to bits. Poor thing (the bird I mean). Have you had to stitch him up? I remember when I raced as a young boy, having a hen come back with all it's chest muscles ripped open - that was wires not hawks.

I sowed it up with some of my Mum's sowing thread and a needle. It made a perfect recovery.

I think in some parts of the country, hawks are getting out of hand and 'something' need to be done about it. I know once, some of them were endangered, but now it is getting so that we can not let our pigeons out without fear of having them killed.

A friend of mine in Scotland has had 2 birds killed this WEEK by hawks and has lost 5 birds already this year. He says that the hawks are hunting in packs now!

Can't the RPRA do something! Or maybe they are - but it's not enough.

Anyway - all the best with getting your cock back to full health.

Cheers Phil, the wound was all dry and scabbed over when it got home, the worrying thing was that it smelt so bad that I think the talons may have punctured something, he's a real power house though, I don't know how he managed to get away with so few feathers left.
That's the second one I've had hawked whilst racing this year, his daughter came back with only a few tail feathers from the 2nd race.
Your right it is a real problem now.
My race was 306 miles yesturday from Berwick to Essex so just think how many birds of prey they have to get past just to get home.

Hopefully the Eagle Owls will increase in population.

Yes you are right my friend - Berwick to Essex on the north road is hard and I guess they meet a lot of Peregrines on-route.

It's a real drag, when you spend all your time breeding and training and looking after your birds, only to have some ......... of a hawk nab one for lunch!

I wish you better success in the future.

Phil
