In a SH or MH test the dog is sent on the go bird and picks it up,instead of returning to the handler the dog goes to the second mark and without dropping the first bird,get them both in his mouth and then returns to the line.
How is this judged and why ?

He should be judged with very high scores in efficiency!!! Honestly I don't know how you would score this. I heard a few people talking about the diversion bird in HRC, how a dog has stopped and picked up both birds. Several different judges said that it was fine, so long as they don't switch one bird for the other. I would like to hear other peoples experiences with this.
