Heres a RAW image taken on Skomer island on a recent trip. How "good" can you make it look? This is my best effort but looks a bit "flat" I think.

Actually, I don't think your example looks flat at all. It looks natural which I prefer. Your attempt is full of artifacts though which detract from the image.

Hope it's accessible......

I'm no expert but here's my attempt with DXO PL5 (took about 2 minutes). Notice it's free of artifacts.

The bird is the same size in both so did you just remove the sand bank somehow?

No, it's the first (different) raw image you provided. Both Guy and I pointed out that your raw and JPEG images were from different frames. I processed that one yesterday.
