Through Spain to Morocco and the desert

Blue XD flew down through mainland Spain and on the evening of 11th September he was fishing on Barbate Reservoir in southern Andulucia. This lake is now home to some of the new Spanish population of breeding ospreys created using translocated chicks from Germany, Scotland and Finland. He roosted that night near the dam, and then next morning crossed the Straits to Morocco and roosted that evening north of Marrakesh. At midday on 14th September he was heading for Guelmin and the start of the crossing of the Sahara Desert.
