This afternoon we heard what we thought was a bee swarm. It was a drone hanging about 50 feet above our garden. Just hanging there. Then moving off.

From experience what can be done to stop this? As we see it it is a gross invasion of privacy and a noise pollutant.

You need a shotgun.

My first thought.

Pressure washer?

There are rules about how close they are allowed to be flown next to properties and people.
I would contact your local PCSO and talk it through with them.

Ah thank you yes I've just looked it up. Not with 50m of people or private property.
In summer I do leave the hose outside......

It's so the thought process that some numb nut for a through that arrives at this decision to fly a drone over someone's garden.

Well. Were you sunbathing naked?

Apols for that word soup just now.....

It IS the thought process that someone thinks it's okay to follow, arriving at the decision to fly the thing in this way that is bewildering.

There was a guy in America who's daughter told him one was flying over her in the back yard while sunbathing so he shot it out the sky 🤠

I'd buy a cheap replica toy gun or a starting pistol from somewhere and next time it appears, stand with it and appear to take aim.

I'd imagine that would be enough to see it off!
