After lunch I had an hour around Hayes Farm , main object being to see if anything interesting had dropped in on the Trout Fishery . As I arrived , so too did 10 Canada Geese , bringing the count up to 12 , and although the 2 Little Greebes were still around , there was no sign of the 3 Wigeon or of the 3 Lesser Spotted Ducks ( many thanks ! for the ID from Steve/Kingsdowner ) . The only new species recorded today was a female Kestrel , and she certainly didn't want her photo taken . The large mixed Finch flock seems to have split into 3 or 4 small ones now and the Redwings seemed to have cleared out all the hedgrows now , and are feeding on the ground . I found them even harder to photograph now as they always kept a good distance , regardless how you approached them . Eventually , I just stayed close to one of the horses in the paddock , and let the odd Redwing come to me .
It sort of worked , but they were still very 'twitchy'.
