Last Saturday, 20th, our much awaited imports were released from Melbourne quarantine. What seemed like an eternity waiting for these birds for well over 12 months whilst they were locked in UK quarantine and then an extended period of another 32 days in Melbourne, (at additional costs), they finally arrived, - in excellent body condition.

I know I speak for all fanciers who had birds in this shipment that finally made it, the frustration and uncertainty over last 12 months has been nerve wracking to say the least. Birds that have never been vaccinated recording zero tests then later recording high tests and being excluded from the shipment at the last moment, not to mention delays implemented by the authorities due to several outbreaks of bird flu is just some of the hassles thats been going on. Three of my four made it, No 4 died in UK two weeks before departure, fortunately I can replace him if I desire, the three that made it basically not replaceable mainly due to costs. My first two are a son and daughter of New Laureaat, he was 1st INTERNATIONAL Barcelona 2013, - 25,382 birds.

These are the first children of a 1st International Barcelona to come to Australia for over 20 years. Between 1995 and 2013, all winners of Barcelona were immediately sold to Asia, hence no direct children around for all those years, until 2013 when the syndicate of Hugo Batenburg and Pipa bought New Laureaat immediately after the race for 250,000 Euro. The hen of the pair, apart from being a direct daughter on her sires line, is also on dam's line a grand daughter of New Laureaat and a hen named Kleine Jade. She was 1st Int Barcelona the following year 2014, 20,669 birds, 1258 km - the longest marker ever recorded to win Int Barcelona. A young FULL SISTER to our hen sold last Monday on Pipa for 12,000 Euro (about A$18,500). The third bird in our shipment is a German bred cock bred from well known long distance fancier, Kipp & Sons. (winners of a 1st International in 2016.) Our bird is a son of Golden Glory - who was awarded the much sought after awards of 1st International Ace Pigeon 2011 - 3 races; 1st Nat Ace Pigeon 20111 Long Distance; 1st Nat Ace Pigeon 2011 National Marathon.
