Tours 2014 | Update - Pigeons Tours didn't leave well

According to the people of the film crew in Tours who contacted us, the pigeons were liberated this morning in bad conditions. They were liberated with heavy clouds (however with high clouds and good visibility). Nevertheless, the responsible people were informed by the meteorologists that sunny intervals were expected from 10h. Why didn’t they wait for a little while then? After 20 minutes, many pigeons were still flying around the place of liberation in Tours. In the distance, a large group of pigeons were flying around as well. So, the pigeons didn’t leave well at all! I hope this won’t be a disaster? Hopefully this won’t be a second La Souterraine.

New images from Tours have reached us. The liberation was dramatically. Some pigeons landed in the lake behind. One pigeon has been saved by someone of the film crew. It’s a pigeon from Gevaert‑Van Schoorisse (see image).

Soltadas a 10:00 CEST

Weather conditions during liberation: blue sky and sunny spells, west wind, good visibility
