Shooting birds in flight is just about as tough as it comes for m4/3 equipment. I find it easier to shoot fast jets where the subject is larger and movement is predictable.

Personally I don't like the IQ from the Lumix lens above about 250mm and I tend to raise the ISO to 400 or so to stop down a little.

Surprisingly the iS built into the Lumix lens is better than that of my Olypus M10 but it's worth trying with the iS off and going back to the old days of smooth panning.

Focusing can always be problematic but I've got used to single AF and squeezing the shutter continuously. Worth trying various combinations depending on your camera.

You've great subject matter there.
