Nice result at Blois ! Direct son Harry wins 10th NPO !

9 August 2016

The last middle distance race of season 2016 is already behind us. Last Saturday, August 6th was the flight “Blois”. For the third time it was a NU-flight, a nice competition with a combined solution of the 5 departments 7-8-9-10-11.
We like these big releases, because you will often get a nice spread and because the numbers of birds a victory is impressive.

At 7:45 the release signal was given and the pigeons were home. Along the way they had to deal with wind from predominantly westerly directions. We had 72 pigeons in the basket, 40 hens and 32 cocks.

Judging by the speed of the youngsters (+ – 1500 mpm), the pigeons were already falling before 14:00. That proved a bit overestimated because at just after half past three the first pigeon arrived. The flight had been a little too easy for our white flight cock because he was flying rounds for a few minutes. Straight from the south, number 2 arrived and landed directly. It was again the yearling cock “Harry Holland” and he was clocked here as the first of our loft. Short after him followed the white flight cock. Shortly after him again a cock, the “Jean” and the fourth pigeon, “The Schift” (Brother Harry) was also a cock. Then arrived a few hens.
