Took me a while but I got there in the end.
Hope someone finds this helpful.
If you've found this useful and have used any of this information for bird photography, I'd really love to seem them!
This tutorial could be adapted for mostly any animal photography too.Wood background
Rest of the images used belong to me.Edit

and `Hanratty-Stock Note:
Some people asked what equpiment I use;
70-300mm Macro Lens F4-5.6
I barely use a tripod mainly because I just don't get on with them, maybe it's because I only have a cheapy one. I only use a tripod when taking photographs of scenery. So it's mostly point and shoot, or lean up against something for steadyness!
