It looked like they were brushing the line as they approached the feeder and that was spooking them.

I have see fish spook of a hand full of loose feed on the swale. Never to return.

I have witnessed the same on a gin clear River Teme when a few kernals of sweetcorn have been thrown in and sat for a while.
There are plenty of videos of Youtube of Barbel feeding around feeders so it's not an exact written rule.
