You have nicely captured the frenzy of activity that is this small chubby bird's signature. Great background.

Grahame:

I like images with motion blur on the wings, but for me most images need to have the head/eye fairly sharp to be effective.  Not saying its easy!

Fantal? It should be Fantail ... on account of it's large fan-shaped tail :)

Endearing little birds, will often fly very close in the hope you stir up insects. Never still for long so difficult to photograph, a great image!
