I noticed in the week that the jackdaws showed when looking out of the back door. I set up this morning with the A77 on my tripod pointing to the sky.
Again the flight was spread out for quarter mile at least
It surprised me because I just had not realised they had so large a sky covered.
I must try again with the camera set to manual focus. I pressed the shutter cable as soon as I saw them but the focus took just enough time so they were almost past before the Continual shutter started. As it was the setting was on high so it would have been around 6 frames per second.
