This is our good cock GB14V39593 who scored 6th Section W in the NFC race from Fougeres yesterday. Being the most north westerly loft in the National we had to contend with a stiff north westerly headwind for the entire race, resulting in a velocity of 945 ypm.
This brave cock was also our first bird in his last race from Ypres with the Welsh South East National where he scored 6th North Section with a velocity of 879 ypm!
He is bred for these kind of conditions being mainly the Klamper bloodline of Cor de Heijde. He has well and truly earned his perch for next year when we will be aimed at Tarbes.
