I am sure I could have done better. Have more pics, but the first one was the best.
In most of them I have set OIS to Off, maybe I'd better set Panning/Panorama mode, for I actually "followed" the birds as they passed by.

I said I could have done better for my seaside home has the balcony in front of the sea and seagulls sometimes pass at few meters.
Yet, even if I took scores of pics, I think I should have tried more.
Very hard to follow them with manual focus but I am not well trained with that.
Also with Manual mode (to set at F8 or slightly more open in order to abolish CA) I got some motion blur (or out of focus) with sun. Hard but not impossible to get good shots of big flying birds (without add on lenses), when they are not far.

Also took some pics of a big seagull resting on a lamp near an harbour, few meters above me, but then I saw it on the LCD the lower beak was in a very bad state, so it's not great to see the pic.
