GPS Trackers

Our tracking information showed that the leading pigeons did not stop to drink enroute which is surprising given the distance and time of flight. The pigeons were sent in super health and early pigeons looked in good shape on arrival.

 

12 tracker birds arrived on day 1 and the first 4, up to 8hrs 38 min of flight, did not stop for water. 32 trackers arrived on day 2 with one clocking at 02.58 am during the night. The highest flight above ground level was recorded at 1372 meters (4500 feet)
