The Western Pigeon Federation was founded in Melbourne Australia in 1972. The Federation conducts pigeon races for fanciers in the western areas of Melbourne for over 120 members. The races are on four tracks west, northwest, north and northeast. There is also a race from Tasmania every season. The season starts in early July with a race from 200kms and ends in November with a race from 950kms.

Conditions at the race point were clear and sunny with a light Northerly wind. Upon release, all birds left the race point in one group within three minutes. For the trip home, the birds are expected to encounter Northerly winds 35-50 km/p/h tending NNE 20-30 km/p/h, before shifting West North Westerly at 35-50 km/p/h as they near Melbourne. Don’t forget, production of clocks is within two hours of clocking. All the best to all.
