comment Where is Canon 1100D autofocussing in low light low contrast conditions?
And despite all that, I end up with such soft images that any magnification at all shows grainy out of focus mush. I put it down to very low contrast just causing the autofocus to give up. But my reason for asking the question is that I just don't understand what the AF system is actually registering upon.

Thank you for the suggestions. I believe that I was doing most things correctly; good tripod, centre focussing point, reasonable settings (ISO 400, f8, shutter between 100th and 250th, AI Servo AF, careful shutter releasing, no wind, stable ground, even tried a few on self timer to elinate all hand vibrations).

Ok, I left out some detail. It was centre AF point selected, AI Servo and on a big tripod. The birds were moving only slightly. That's my point - on a sunny day all would be good. But in low contrast the whole image is poor.
