Great shot. Intersted to know how you set up the flash and how it was triggered? Also, I have found when taking pics of birds to move the af focus point away from centre, if you are able to do this, so it keeps the head sharp. Still a bit hit and miss but seems to work. Looks like focus is on the wing more than the head, still a great shot though.

Fantastic image! Not the usual "perched on a branch" blue tit shot. Well done

What a fantastic shot - so well captured. They are hard enough to take when they land never mind in flight.
