I‘ve been watching the Bird Feeder webcam at The Lodge and there are 3 children carrying on trying to bang the camera with wood and also trying to bring birdfeeders crashing down onto the ground. It is quite disturbing.
Have you tried ringing them Ian to let them know?

In reply to Alan.:
I don’t suppose the main staff at The Lodge headquarters will be working today. I tried phoning but no reply. Those 3 children have now left from the vicinity of the webcam.
In reply to THOMO:
The HQ office staff will be off but the reserve shop should be open.
I did phone The Lodge Shop, But they asked if they where still in the vicinity of the webcam and I told the member of staff or volunteer that they had left that area, she didn’t seem interested and just said we'll keep an eye out. The response to myself was quite disappointing.
That's a shame Ian
I know. She didn’t seem concerned.
I work at The Lodge and I've just seen your post. I've just now sent an email to the Site Manager to notify him of this, though he is currently on leave. I'll also mention it to security and other colleagues so they know to keep an eye out. It certainly is disturbing; thanks for letting us know!
In reply to Thomas S:
The Lodge Webcam is now just a blank screen with some bright light. Whether those 3 children have damaged the camera from yesterday, I don’t know.
I 've just scrolled back on youtube Ian and a kid has pulled some sort of bag over it.
I scrolled back about 45 minutes from now.
I've got a screen grab of him but wont post it on here.
