So the hides weren't even finished before being vandalised. Bored youth? Disaffected locals? Or bored youth egged on by disaffected locals? Random wandering arsonist? Surely someone saw something on a Sunday afternoon in August (or was everyone at Greenman or the Birdfair?); there must have been a grockle or two circulating, I'm assuming the tide was all wrong for a proper visit.
If anyone reads this and did see something (shifty-looking youth or, just as likely, adult) I'm sure CCW would like to hear from you. Contact details for CCW are available under 'Who looks after it' halfway down the linked page --> click here.
