Update so far
Old birds - we have 3 old bird races left being , Salisbury, Saints and Bordeaux, We are not sending to Saints as this race has been added at a very late stage and we have not sent our NFC form off. The federation will self implode if they carry on changing the race programme so late in the day, We have 5 for Bordeaux and hope for a good show.
Young birds - these are coming well. the naturals are going south and are at porthcawl and the darkness are at penderyn mountain , naturals have had 15 tosses, Darkness have had 12 tosses. We are very pleased with their progress and the federation has the first race for the 28th of July but yet again they have changed things by splitting the federation in to 2 sections and 2 races. This could be the start of the split that is due in the federation, why oh why are they splitting again, I remember 2 years ago when they did this and a disaster was had by the east race.
Our plans - We might not send now until the 3rd race where all the federation will go together , in 2013 we are thinking of not sending to the federation after the first 2 races, we will plan out a campaign for the classics,
We are sending 4 today to Salisbury , these are birds that have been injured throughout the year, we do not expect great things from them but who knows?
Best of luck to all..
