Saturday already 4e Sprint race of the season. This time the unloading Quievrain was over a distance of 313 km.
We had again 63 pigeons basketed, 28 doffers in 35 hens. Still a nice number to play.
In Belgium they had moved all flights as a precaution for the bad weather from Saturday to Sunday. Fortunately the rain was already at night and on the morning brightened up early.
About 9.00 hours the release of the committee well enough to unload and the pigeons took to the air. Most birds have a good starting, however, struggled to choose the right course a small group.
It would almost 4 hour flight for the first pigeons, on the fly line or showers were present but they would not have it too much bother with luck.
About 12.55,56 was therefore our 1e pigeon clocked. This time a year old hen, from 18-1552135. As 2e Once again a hen, from 18-1552121 and was clocked at 12.55,56. As 3e, 4e in 5e were clocked cocks. That is the advantage of double widowhood.
Then the birds came back very well, despite the necessary showers move. This time the yearlings were found again early results. Last week a strong SW winds were experienced old birds that were early.
In the association we had the 1e, 2e, 4e, 5e, 7e, 9e, 10e, 11e, 13e, 14e, in 15e. So in other words 11 at the first 15, a super result with many early birds. (See results)
In ons Rayon 4 we ended 42 of the 63 pigeons in the price. A very attractive rate 67%.
This time, and that is the 3e time all pigeons returned.
Next week already 1e Middle distance race and the point Dizy-Legros will be over a distance of approximately 365 km.
Good luck all.
