I had the yearling hen back today from Elgin 457 miles. The race was on the 2nd July. So another one that has homed although rather late. I am now only 2 birds missing from the old bird races.shame I lost so many in training. I seem to be getting them back but need to be getting them much quicker. This one is from a cock from Trev.

Still good to see him home, Andy.

There's plenty that aren't.

I am good! They aren't firing rubber bullets at me. Yet.

Not yet mate. Still time for her yet lol. She is one of the 2 old birds I’m still missing. The other one is Phil’s cock from Elgin. 

She is a bit tired and a bit light. Of course what we don’t know is how far she has actually flown, where she’s been or how many miles has she flown in the day, couple of days, before she returned. My guess would be that she was a long way from home the day before yesterday and has flown a lot of miles. Or she was completely flown out initially, and of course it was during the hot dry period, and has taken a long time to recover.

As Murray says there are still a lot of pigeons that haven’t got home.
