Agree about how hard they are to shoot in flight! You cracked it though!

I was there last Sunday as well, and only managed one reasonably sharp shot. They seemed to be continually coming in to land exactly where I wasn't!!

They're difficult to keep in focus, but it's rewarding when you finally get one. The light-coloured grasses make a nice backdrop for this subject.

Well done. It is very hard to catch them in flight, so to get one this good makes me very jealous and determined to do better next year!!!!

Thanks for the comments. I did spend a long time trying to get a decent flight shot.
