I think it is invasive, I used to get it sometimes when working in a big tree. It put me off what I was doing.Feels invasive doesn't it. Spoils the magic of being on the water, when you think its the only place to get some peace
Legally I wouldn’t have been able to post the pic here without their permission.
Annoyingly I’m trying to learn as fast as I can but this is the second bit of conflicting information I’ve come across. In the FlyerID test I was led to believe photos and footage of people couldn’t be published on social media but could be shared amongst family and friends. But in the CAA document here it merely advises giving it some thought.Is that true? Is it different for a photo taken with a drone? As long as you have taken the photograph in a public place and the people are not engaged in an activity where they would 'reasonably expect privacy' I thought you are free to use photos without permission except for 'commercial advertising'.
I have photographed people and crowd scenes in public places for years and, unless the law has changed recently or it is explicitly different for photos taken with a drone, I have been sure of my rights to use the pictures - even sell them. However, if my photo was taken in a street but was of a person in their house, that would be a 'private' place. Most of the photographic magazine websites publish teh rules about taking photographs in public places and using them.
There is a difference between photos and video though, as far as I can tell, in as much as you must tell people they are in sight of a video camera if it covers an area that is public - but that can just be a notice saying that 'CCTV' is operating.
I can't see an operators licence localises flying if someone can travel somewhere and fly a drone. Unless the ID is broadcast I can't really see how the licence helps.All I can offer you is the operators have to be registered if they have a drone with a camera, so technically that localises who is flying in your area if a problem occurs. Why do you think your land is being filmed, are the drone operators looking for something?
22. Make sure you can be clearly seen when you’re out flying
This means people will know who’s responsible for your drone or model aircraft.
That reminds me of the drone taken out by a spear!There have been several instances of using a drone over people’s stables. Scoping the place out then subsequent thefts of saddles etc.
Despite the large sign saying “No flying drones from this site “ we have had some flying from the picnic site opposite our boatyard over our secure compound.
One was hovering deliberately very low, so I made out I was picking up a stone and as soon as I went to
“ throw” it , it went up high and away from the yard.
I was going to make a comment that I've never met someone who's not a NIMBY.Drone Nimby's.

But thinking about it, if the person who was flying the drone that made me start this thread had introduced themself and asked permission to fly over my woodland I would have probably said yes (with a few conditions).
I don't think anyone on this thread is seriously suggesting shooting a drone. I'm not sure how much trouble you would be in around here as poaching seems to be largely ignored and that would seem more serious?Just to put one thing across, if you shoot or otherwise purposely damage a drone flying over your property you will be in a lot more trouble than the person operating the drone
