Tullamore 1/8/2015 liberation between 10-00am & 11-00am

Good morning the N.I.P.A. are in Tullamore this morning for a Mass Liberation between 10-00am and 11-00am,  I have spoken to the convoyer and  the birds are on site from three o’clock this morning. The  conditions at the release point are broken cloud and sunshine with a west south west breeze, the curtains are open and the drinkers are on. So I want to give the birds ample time to get a drink and settle down so I am looking at a 11-00am liberation I will keep an eye on the weather conditions as the morning progress’s, and keep you informed accordingly.
