Black-headed Gull in flight

By czech  
The light was fading and the shutter speed was too slow to get sharp in-flight shots. So I decided to make a virtue of necessity and try panning at very slow shutter speeds (1/15th-1/30th of a second). How is this for a panning shot?

When panning, he best idea is to gauge the speed of swing to keep the main suject sharp whilst blurring the background. This is a reasonable try, but there is nothing near fully sharp and, for me, the bird's body and head should be.
