Grey heron flying away!
Well, at least you had your camera to hand. One flies low over my house regularly but I never have my camera to hand. I dash to get it and rush to the front, side or back of the house depending where I think he'll be now; but he's always altered his flight path and is disappearing into the distance. Ha, ha, does it to annoy me, I think.
We were dog walking in the fields by a river, and my hubby said he had seen the herons there, so I took the camera, was trying to sneak up on the Buzzard, and I got what would have been a fabulous shot of that flying, then the lens was hunting and I missed some brilliant flying heron shots, but eventually got a few like this as the heron went back overhead! I really want the 70-200mm f2.8 L III or even II lens, which is supposed to be really good for wildlife, and I love my 18-55 f2.8 L lens, it is superb and makes the other one look pretty awful performance wise, I wonder if it would have a long enough focal length, compared to my 70-300 none L lens. Also I might have to go on a weight lifting course to carry it round!
I have been trying to get good flying shots that were in focus for years!

Ha ha. Me too, Cazzy! Love that donkey foal photo in your portfolio. Good luck with the in-flight shots.
