Not great, but happy to capture a little bit of detail, hand held as it flew past.

Nice one - I've watched it over the past few nights but haven't plucked up the courage to have a stab at it.

Thanks Chris, it went past twice on Thursday. After the first pass I thought and try and capture it, this was the only clearish pic out of about 20 I managed. It don't have move fast when using a long lens, sigma 150-500 at 500 mm.

No isn't very easy to do, didn't really think about how fast it moves until trying to photograph it!
