D5100 centre focus problems

Hi,

I largely use centre focus single servo and have problems focussing on small objects (planes/birds) against a bright sky, especially at 200-300mm using the 70-300mm VR lens - it often fails to focus and set the focus distance to the minimum, requiring manual intervention to recover. The other focus points are much more reliable in these circumstances - and will usually focus quickly.
Has anyone else noticed this or do I have a faulty camera?

Cheers,
Mike
