I cheated and drove up to Ubley Warren (cycling it has nearly caused me death... It is seriously steep!)
I brandished my camera at a variety of small birds which were extremely flighty and wouldnt give me a look in.

Linnet? No idea...
Then something bigger.
These were swines to get. So nervous and flitting all over the place. About 15 in all. Fieldfare I believe. Don't think I have seen them this early before.
UPDATE: They are juvenile Mistle thrushes. Never seen loads of them together before. Thanks to Julian for the correction :-)
Aside from this there were plenty of Goldfinches sitting on teasles. Unfortunately I was quite incapable of getting a picture of them. I was getting a little irate and mumbling to myself t this point.
At the pond I noticed a Swallow stopping point and got a few pictures before the clouds came in.
After all the difficulty of little fast birds I decided to try and get a macro. Bumble Bees are a favourite of mine and this one was alright.
Sometimes insects play fare!
