I don't remember many being out-of-focus, maybe 1 in 5. The camera does pretty well when the subject is clearly distinguished from the background (bird against the sky). Where it seems to have trouble is when the surroundings are confussing (bird in a bush). This is probably true of any AF.

Is it me or are the first two out of focus - on the rider anyway? (which I presume is what you would want in focus)

The third one looks ok but I'm not sure even that one is locked on?

Sorry, I mis-read you comment the first time around. I think the focus is off on the first image (bird in a bush). It seems to be on the water closer to the camera. I disagree that the second shot is off (bird in the sky). Here's a couple of 1:1 crops that make it clearer. Both images have 0 sharpening and 0 noise reduction.
