En route to wintering site

Beatrice left on 18th and flew to the Pyrenees and crossed at her usual passes between 1300 and 1400GMT. She flew on down over Pamplona and roosted near Encisco. On 19th she flew 374 kms south through Spain, flying between Siguenza and Guadalajara at 1300hrs at 51kms/hr at 1662 metres altitude. By 2000hrs she was perched by the Reservoir de Gasset north of Cuidad Real.  She has 300kms to fly and the weather today is clear and sunny with very light north winds, she should get there by evening. I saw her chick perched at the nest this afternoon.
