I looked closer and saw this. At first I thought it was a homeless persons stash.
A closer inspection revealed a wire, disguised with camouflaged tape. The wire led down into the leaf cover.
I followed the wire through the leaf litter along the floor of the woods...
It disappeared into what looked like a hatch.
I cleared away a little of the debris, and tentatively peeked under the edge.
Carefully I lifted up the lid. Beneath was a Peli case and two large camouflaged battereis.
I didn't attempt to open the case. I don't know what this equipment does. Maybe it's some sort of E.T. contraption 'phoning home'... (I didn't see any BMX tracks). Someone has gone to a lot of effort to conceal it. I reckon that it's got to be some sort of surveillance apparatus. The local council use spy tactics to catch people illegally dumping, and there was that incident where a postal van was set on fire here after a raid with the driver still tied up inside (he got out luckily), so it could be the police. I couldn't find any sort of a camera attached. I suppose there could be a remote camera. It's mystery, and that's why I'm going back tonight. I'll be sure to take a scanner to try and find a signal of any kind, as well as a video camera to pick up any infra red from a low light camera...
