In todays’ race from Rochester 06/07/2013, 1866 WPF birds competing from 61 lofts and 483 Geelong birds were released at 11am. Conditions at the race point were overcast with a light North Westerly wind. Within two minutes the birds had left the race point in one group.
For the journey home the birds are expected to encounter West to North Westerly winds of between 20 to 30 km p/h. Top temperature expected in Victoria today is 14 degrees.
Remember production of clocks is one and a half hours after clocking.
Good luck to all.
