It was raining and quite dull hence the noise on the image. Sadly I didn't capyure the lower section of the Chaffinch wings as this would have improved the shot even with noise. The marks seen are drops of rain and not dust on the sensor. Its fun trying to get these type of shots.

Such a shame it is so noisy, but very well captured all the same. Carol

Nice composition, despite the missing wingtips. Though I think that would have worked better if you'd focused on the top bird.

I think I'd have dropped the ISO a little to avoid the noise. You didn't need 1/3200th sec to hold a 250mm lens steady.

Thanks for your comments. Regards focusing on the top bird, I set the focal point manually at a particular point as these birds are going extremely fast and auto focus is not possible. The high shutter speed is to try and freeze the birds in flight, again very difficult due to their speed. I Unfortunately the high ISO was required to give the shot enough light. I am experimenting with shutter speeds and flash. Hopefully also have a much lower ISO therefore less noise in the shot. Again thanks for your comments.
