Struggling with focussing

Hi, I’m new to photography and have saved up for a second-hand RX10 iii.

So far I’ve mainly been using it to take photos on (motor)bike rides, which often means wildlife.

I am really struggling to focus.

I watched a Barn owl flying back and forth over a field near our house and the only shot remotely in focus was when it stopped and perched - and even that wasn’t great.

What sort of settings should I be using please?

They would have been so great if they’d been in focus 😢

(ps ignore the exposure comp, I keep moving the dial by accident)
