Every time I take a shot of a bird in flight I seem to get a very soft murky shot with no clarity. This was shot at 1600th of a second so the shutter speed should have been enough to freeze it and I had the lens resting on a hide window ledge to reduce camera shake, but it's still very soft. It's a real shame as I've nailed the timing. Any ideas on what's going wrong? By the way this hasn't been cropped very heavily (just to improve the composition). Th original is just as soft.
