The ground being patrolled at night by blacked out inserts, alongside the proposed Dart Energy drill site at Brooklands Farm, Dudleston in North Shropshire, pictured at the beginning of May. The plough is now a maize field over six feet high providing the perfect cover for infiltrators. I’d like to know who these characters moving around at night on my property are and what they’ve been up to.
The North Shropshire Community Protection Group (NSCPG) set up camp on Brooklands Farm on Wednesday 23rd July, alongside Dart Energy’s proposed drilling site.. The very first night they became aware that they were not alone.
There were some other weird visitors seen clearly by the campers on Wednesday and Thursday night. Dressed entirely in black, with blacked up faces, three men were moving through the woods cracking sticks as they went, moving silently otherwise. What were they doing? The protectors kept quiet and saw them as they appeared from the wood.
It was most unlikely these ‘inserts’ could have known the camp was there, and therefore unlikely that they were there to spook and harass the campers. The camp is hard to find even in daylight when you now it’s there, being well sited in a dip in front of a tall hedge, and not visible from the road.
It is clear from an email that Dart Energy were unaware of the camp until Thursday afternoon. The same intruders were there again on Thursday night in silence apart from the sound of them moving around. They have not been seen since.
The local Badger Watch, who I know well, carried out a survey of the badger setts in the woods at the weekend, and confirmed the presence of many healthy badgers but also that some of the setts had been tampered with.
Night Camouflage Night camouflage was designed for night time concealment and works best in low light and dark environments. The pattern is currently worn by private security contractors around the world including international maritime security professionals, local security companies as standard uniform

COMMENT – All Badger setts around Daneshill were trashed prior to Dart coming to Drill. References to Badgers in planning documents at Notts council, had any references to Badgers redacted in the final versions. Funny that.
