Don't worry, everyone is Neil, just some more than others.
As to why? Who knows but have you tried holding it still?

Let's ask the question.

What do you think you are doing wrong?

Have you got a good sight picture?

Are you holding the gun steady?

Have you tried dry firing? Boring I know.
But just go and have a shoot for half an hour, but don't take any pellets with you.
