    It was evident that the pigeons were attacked by hawks en route, which is the norm, as we had scattered groups returning with a few injuries from hawks.

    The ACE Bird competition will start to get more interesting as more races are held. It is expected that the prevailing wind will swing more north from now and is likely to be a head wind for the pigeons.
