At 6 p.m. Friday, all birds fed and watered. Some laying down in crates re lots of room. The temperature is 30 degrees at present but cooler in the trailer, humidity is quite high. The visability still at least 10 miles. The local pigeon club is 100 feet away in park. We were asked down there for a look whilst they were basketing. After basketing, due to this being a cognac region, they all drink local brewed brandy with tonic. Had a sip to be polite and it's very strong but the 14 members polished the bottle in less than 20 mins. We thanked them and said our good byes but they said they will see us tomorrow morning, they will be here around 6 a.m. as their birds are being picked up. Lovely people, nice village with one shop and a great liberation point with all facilities at your disposal, showers, toilets and plenty water for birds. Dom McCoy, Convoyer

Update at 14.25 hrs local time. It's very warm. All birds fed and watered. The wind is southerly with lots of clouds. Spoken again to the local pigeon fanciers and agent, the weather in Northern France is still not very good. Hopefully we will get the birds away early in morning with a forecast Westerly wind. Dom McCoy, Convoyer.
