Migratory routes during a autumn 2013 and b spring 2014 overlaid on to the respective monthly north – south winds (V wind component) at 850 hPa (c1500 m a.s.l.). Line colors represent the different individuals. Autumn routes through the Sahara desert were aided by prevailing northerly winds, while spring routes east of the Red Sea, avoid Sahara predominant headwinds.
