Another top performance on the middle distance race Melun (310km)

The weather circumstances for racing pigeons are tough for already several weeks. Also this weekend the birds had to be persistent to find their way back home. The birds had to deal with turning winds (mainly head winds). The weather was also changing during the day from rainy till sunny. It was not an easy task for the birds. This kind of races is perfect for our pigeons to make the difference. They excelled again. We sent birds to the middle distance race Melun (310km) and the national race Argenton (555km). In this article we will discuss our results on the Melun (310km) race.

Our pigeons won this weekend the following results:
