Winter Wood Wander (not very successful)

Picked up the Mrs from work yesterday and decided to take the kids for a wander as they had been cooped up all day doing homework.

The place we went to is a country park and RSPB reserve, the only thing we spotted worth taking a picture of was a Squirel who decided to not hibernate. Problem was I had somehow (probably while changing lens's with gloves on) changed the focus mode to a group focusing, rather than spot focusing - couldn't get the eye in focus as I would normally try to do, but here is the result.

I like the composition, just not happy with the focus - thoughts?

EM-1 using my four thirds 70-300 and MMF-3 @300mm f5.6 1/200 .

I think I would have wanted to see more of his head, really, as well as a sharp eye. A shame, but these things happen!
