Goldlciff Lagoons

Main Sighting: Warning Vandalism in Hide 1
I regret to warn everyone that today I arrived at the lagoons and was warned by a fellow birder that some unknown disgusting person had defecated in Hide 1 on the bird log book and strewn kitchen towel covered in faeces all over the interior of the hide. The vandal had also smeared faeces over at least one of the benches. I subsequently entered the hide and have taken pictures of the mess and then too the effort to clean up and remove the mess. Unfortunately I did not have any cleaning products other than plastic bags. I have moved the bench that is covered in faeces to the end of the hide out of the way and opened the hide shutters to get fresh air inside. Please can those who know manager contact him and update. I would also advise vigilance whilst at the lagoons and look out for anyone acting suspicious and report accordingly.
