Blue Tits in Flight

I was visiting a nature reserve earlier this week and having been walking around all morning, I decided to have my lunch by the bird feeding station. The birds were using the same flight path to the feeders each time, so I thought I could maybe try for some flight shots. I put on a 300mm lens, set the camera to manual focus and aimed just below the feeders. With my sandwich in one hand and camera in the other, every time a bird approached I took a couple of shots. A few of them have actually turned out ok.
