We arrived at Ouistreham docks at 6.30am. All birds were watered for second time. The weather is sunny and hot. We rested the birds for about one hour, most seemed to drink while water was being splashed about. I have switched all nine fans on to automatic. We left the docks at 8.15am on route to Tarbes, next stop 4.5 hours for driver's break and to replenish waters. Dom McCoy, Convoyer.

200 miles stop for driving break, birds waters topped up. Temperatures are very hot with a strong Northerly wind, humidity is very high. Automatic fans are working overtime, keeping the temperature inside the trailer stable. With the fans on, the humidity in the trailer is very good. Dom McCoy, Convoyer.

From early am, now 08.00 a.m. local time, there is a lot of mist and light rain. It does not seem to be clearing. I have changed tactics today, birds have slowed down with drinking as we are in shade of trees, so today I am hopper feeding letting birds pick as much as they want. It is still warm but the birds seem very relaxed and are trying to have a bath which is a good sign of contentment. I will send updates throughout the day. Dom McCoy, Convoyer.
