Thanks Mike.... don't let bad light stop you, someone on here will almost always work out what it is :o)
I never let bad light stop me, I'm a bit naughty in that I will push the cameras features past sensible, and then, if the photo is worth keeping, I'll either edit the exposure using Canon's editing suite or Photoshop, depending which gives the better results for that photo.

I've only seen one but I believe another characteristic is that even when sitting in one spot they tend to bob up and down every now and again.

I think that is by far most likely but I can't be absolutely sure as some relevant characteristics aren't shown in the photo.
