I've been after these in flight for some time but they are so boisterous that I found it quite difficult.  So much so that I couldn't follow them with a very long lens and ended up resorting to a 55-200mm.  Consequently the crop is quite severe and the quality could be better.  Best I've managed so far though.

They look okay to me, John.  
It's difficult to get the exposure right with black and white plumage but you've done a good job there.

Nice John - birds if flight are never easy, but you caught these well.

Thanks Gareth, thanks Korbione.  One day I will get the shot I want.  The nice thing is that it will mean a few happy hours p on the fells.

Difficult birds to capture in flight due to their aerobatics....
