My oldest daughter and I arrived to the liberation point at 6:30 a.m. The day started clean and sunny. From 7 a.m. to 8 o´clock the pigeons got water. When we liberated the pigeons are flown in a group at 19 ° C temperature. I was happy with the liberation.
At 11:15 a.m. I arrived at the Derby Cordoba loft, there waited Antonio Jimenez and my brother Jose. Almost half an hour later, the first four pigeons came from far up in the sky with head wind and the temperatures grow up higher and higher than expected up to 30 ° C. After 25 pigeons arrived, the pigeons came only very severally.
Although today the maximum temperature of 38 ° C have been exceeded by up to 3 ° C, and can not be compared with similar races and liberations at the same distance and temperatures for that result. To 21:00 clock the air was very hot.
The last three pigeons arrived as we were present, we have analyzed the pigeons by hand, and they had no signs of defects.
The hot air was blowing towards the south (head wind), the pigeons were forced to rest, so that they arrive tomorrow in the morning freshness. But after this year, I dare not predict anything.
Well, I'm driving all night and tried to rest at noon, unfortunately I could not rest after this flight result. Tomorrow is a new day.
