Saint Malo 2015
The N.I.P.A. would like to thank the members for their cooperation on getting the birds ready for Saint Malo on Tuesday morning, which allowed the lorry to leave on the 9-30pm ferry from the south of Ireland to sail straight into France it is very much appreciated .The birds arrived at the ferry at 7-00pm and got a light feed and then were watered, the water was left on the birds all night while the ferry sailed. Next morning the birds got another light feed and the drinkers topped up. The birds arrived in France today 24th June 2015 at 3-00pm our time, then they arrived on site at 6-30pm our time, they got another light feed at 7-00pm and watered. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank the two drivers for looking after the birds and putting the effort into making this possible for a Thursday morning liberation if possible ( weather permitting ).
Birds have been liberated at 7am with little to no wind, hope the returns are good…
Have a good one everyone…
The N.I.P.A. have liberated in Saint Malo at 7-00am, there was no wind at release point and they had blue sky and sunshine right up to Camborne which is approximately 25 to 30 miles north of Penzance. The wind is to pick up on route as the birds come north, it’s to go force 4 or 5 southerly later and the sea state slight to moderate, visibility moderate to good. There is to be some light rain at the home end and good luck to all.
