Olga is right

Your crop is way too high to get a decent image.  There are not enough pixels to adequately capture the image. Add in the extra noise you get at ISO 640 and these images are about the best you can expect. I own a 450 and the noise reduction technology, in contrast to later xxD models, is just not that good. Finally shooting through glass is a definate no-no.

The 55-250mm is capable of great images. But it can't do what you want at that distance and with that many constraints. This is probably the best you can do without a bigger lens, being outside having better light, or getting closer.
