Low thro the Beacons in pretty scrappy air and very slow all the way until past Ross-on-Wye after which it got a little easier. Got to turn point and back to Malverns without much mishap but large area of grey, dead sky meant a straight glide to Hereford where arriving relatively low had to scrap around in rubbish air just trying to progress west. However, got a great climb over Madley which got me home. Slow flight but still satisfying getting through some difficult parts and completing the task.
