Four examples of the complete rotations seen in dynamic soaring of a wandering albatross (Diomedea exulans) (40 Hz tag attached to the back feathers with tape for a bird equipped on Marion Island), partitioned using FFT (isolated using in-house software Mk DD). a M-sphere with the four m-prints coloured by relative angular velocity (AV). b AV plotted by time for each of the four examples. Visualised in this way, the AV metric (relative to max. and min. values of data shown) can be used to quantify consistency in the trajectory of the behaviour and therefore performance
