Posted on June 17, 2015 by fred
The N.I.P.A. are in Penzance and have held over due to fog on the channel, at the release point it is over cast with low cloud and mist on the hills. In Camborne it is foggy which is approximately 25 miles from Penzance in Bude it is foggy out to sea, Talbenny is overcast but was starting to showing signs of improvement.

The N.I.P.A. have liberated in Penzance at 8-10am in a light westerly wind with blue sky and sunshine the temperature was 14 degrees. In Camborne approximately 25 to 30 miles up the coast they had blue sky and sunshine with a light westerly wind. In Bude they had a high white cloud with patches of blue with a light westerly wind. In Fishguard it was a high white cloud with blue patches with a light westerly wind. In Ireland along the coast from Wexford up to Skerries it was much the same as the rest of the route, so I would like to wish you all good luck.

Saint Malo 2015
The N.I.P.A. would like to thank the members for their cooperation on getting the birds ready for Staint 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…
