I need some help.

My loft is surronded by trees and I can't my birds to route.
When I let them out of the loft they fly into a tree or on the loft.

When I take them off on their first training toss I lose a lot.

thanks..

This post could get moved to an appropriate section so that he gets more help.

I think it has to do with the first toss distance and feeding schedule.

Release your birds empty stomach from a distance after the trees from where you can still get some line of sight. Repeat at all four directions (N,E,S,W)

Hi I have the same problem, smallholdings and the loft surrounded by massive trees. I'm doing the same basket them and release them every morning and evening about 600m from loft still in sight. Will do this for a couple of weeks till I see that the young birds starts exploring, i.e. flying further and further away from the loft and out of sight for approximately 15 minutes then I'll know they are comfortable with their surroundings and mapped the loft. Good luck!
