I was up several times too, did consider going and basketing the birds up around 2am as was sure the loft roof was going to end up in next doors garden.

they are saying they will ease if so you should be ok, but as you say there is no rush, im not rushing either with mine im watching trainers going over fighting to fly its crazy, i would rather keep a shed full than lose a shed full
