Let the birds out as usual and off they went out of sight, after about 30 minutes i started to get a bit concerned as they are usually back around then, after another 15 minutes i saw them coming in but to my surprise there was another 10 birds flying with them ! .

Mine started circling the loft ready to come in followed by the other 10, mine landed and the other 10 must have thought hang on we don't live here circled a couple of times and went on there way.

Just shows how many people are training birds around here.

Would say that they probably got in with someone else’s out exercising, may have been ranging in the same area as yours. Yours could even have been circling their loft first. That’s one of the fascinating things with this sport, once away from your loft you have no idea where they are or what they are doing, doesn’t matter as long as they come back to you. All good experience for them. Your 10 are coming on nicely Paul.

Sounds like your birds did well there Paul, great experience for them. As Andy says who knows what our birds get up when they are out of sight, good that yours have started to explore, well done mate.

Good to hear your pair are settling to the job in hand, those eggs will be chipping before you know it mate.
