These are my tips if you have an SLR and at least a 300mm lens.

Settings: Aperture prioty (A or AV then set at F5.6), AI servo (on Canon's), continous shooting, ISO 400.
Focus onto a bird flying (preferably towards or past you) keep the shutter half down to stay focused and when the time is right shoot away.

But I warn you now, once you get into it theres no going back, It's addictive! Laughing
