Pied Wagtail Test

By cantona43  
Here is another test with my camera I spotted this little chap on the rocks and he was so fast and hopping about he proved a little difficult to capture not helped by the equipment I was carrying. All tips/comments are most welcome as the learning process is a great help
Regards Neil

Don't do bird photography myself so could not offer any tips, but do you really need any when you manage a shot like this of this fast moving subject???
Looks very fine to me, Neil.

A cracking shot Neil, you've nailed him good and proper. You did especially well to get so close to him and get him perfectly in focus

Great shot, you seem to have mastered this one.
The only advice I can give is to have a lot of patience, and have the camera set on multi shot and you may be lucky to get a 'take-off' shot..
