Keeping one's head down

Avoided Uskmouth this morning, thought there might just be the slightest amount of disturbance from the 800+ Brownies/Guides whose jamboree the RSPB were hosting, during the breeding season, on a NNR holding at least three Schedule 1 species. Given how predictable it is that 800+ kids might be a less than peaceful influence, I wonder if any disturbance caused to the Cetti's, etc., could be referred to as 'reckless' a la, for example, Schedule 12 of The Countryside and Rights of Way Act?

I wonder.

Anyhoo, I ended up at Magor Marsh along with a few others avoiding Uskmouth. A Yellow Wagtail heading NE was about the best of the birding although plenty of Whitethroat, Blackcap, House Martin and Swallow were dotting about plus a fair few butterflies and hoverflies but that was about it.
