MARK WILLIAMSON OF ASHBOURNE TAKES 1ST FED OUT OF KINGSDOWN (4).

Mark Williamson

 

SATURDAY JUNE 29TH SAW 101 MEMBERS ENTER 1341 BIRDS FOR THE KINGSDOWN (4) RACE, ALYS CUT THE STRINGS AT 07-15 AND THE BIRDS WERE AWAY IN A LIGHT S.E. WIND. THE BIRDS WERE UP EARLY DUE TO HIGH TEMPERATURES FORECAST FOR LATER ON IN THE DAY, AND THE BIRDS CERTAINLY WOULD HAVE BENEFITED FROM THE EARLY RELEASE, BUT THEY WERE SPLIT UP, PROBABLY CAUSED BY PREDATORS AGAIN? MEMBERS SHOULD REALLY START THIKING ABOUT GETTING AWAY FROM THE WEST COUNTRY, I KNOW THAT PEREGRINES ARE EVERYWHERE NOW, BUT SURELY WE SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR THE SAFER ROUTES FOR OUR BIRDS, I KNOW OF BIRDS THAT RETURNED HOME WITH DAMAGE, AND THERE WERE A FEW BIRDS OUT STILL AT NIGHTFALL.
