These are some shots of young birds in our long distance race team in North Wales…they are of various ages ranging from a group of 36 that have had around sixty training tosses and two races this season. Another group of around 25 May and June hatched will start their training next week and weather permitting will have around 20 – 30 tosses during the Autumn up to about 70 miles. The last group of around 25 have just been weaned and will have maybe 15 tosses up to 25 miles before Christmas then will be trained with nest years race team.
Maybe if we are lucky we will have a nice team of yearlings to start the campaign.
Next season we will start to build our long distance team in the Netherlands and aim them towards the ZLU National races in a few years time.
