We present some initial findings of a long-term project to identify the flight dynamics of large birds of prey, during free-flight outdoors. This paper outlines our methods for dealing with the particular challenges a project of this nature provides, and some preliminary results outlining the flight characteristics of soaring flight, and providing detailed descriptions of some of the manoeuvres observed during flight.
