Hi Keith, having attended a very similar session if I may I will add some critique.

The idea with the shot is to use the heather to obscure the perch on which the merlin is sitting. I have not uploaded one from this year, but LeeFisher who has voted on this has, so if you follow this link you can see the difference that this makes to the final shot. Clearly the light on the two days was different, but you get the idea.

Here's a link to one from last year where the perch is just about visible.

I know when there are 10-12 people taking a similar shot that finding a good line can be difficult, but I am not sure if you were aware of the intended result or not.

If there were a little more heather in the bottom left then the image would work better, but as it is at the moment the eye is drawn down and out of the bottom left of the shot.
