  1. Results of the model on the individual daily travel speed along the migration route for autumn and spring. Environmental variables describe conditions at sunset. In spring, air temperature was collinear with remaining migration distance and therefore air temperature was removed from the model. Estimates and 95% CrI are given for each environmental variable. 95% CrI not including zero are given in bold. More details, including scale parameter to assess overdispersion, goodness of fit, etc., are given in Additional file 4
