This is not easy thing to do. I will struggle to find it in the viewfinder let alone capturing it. So well done Ade.

This is awesome Ade, you can feel the speed of the bird, this is why Digital is so special! You can just delete unwanted images and not worry over cost, take it one step at a time my friend.

Excellent technique, Ade, that's not the easiest of lenses to fast track a boid.

excellent, I have hardly ever manged to get a bird of prey in flight and and don't have the foggiest idea how some of you folks do it. I never know where and when to expect them, their territories seem giant! Usually I see them on the way to work, till I stop somewhere grab camera, get out of Land Rover they are a mile away!

Well done Ade. I tried this with a friendly falconer in Wales and ended up throwing all my images away.

Nice one.
