Yes, it's a bird.

Peregrine's are a tad tricky to say the least which is why i was delighted to find this radio-controlled one in my local model shop.

Birds in flight is one of the rare situations where i will use grown-up 'full manual' mode, as although it initially takes a little more effort than my default / preference for aperture priority it is simple enough when you get used to it.

Anyone interested, do drop me a line - i have a very very simple way of doing it.

They're buggers to control with the radio though.....

At the end of the day you have a fine shot, Phil. Perfectly positioned, you can imagine it swooping through the rest of the frame.
