    We noticed these (badly) painted numbers 1 & 2 painted on a council-owned boundary fence next to our property.

    I'm familiar with the council painting on the pavement/road but can't figure this out, the numbers are maybe 6-8 posts apart and the fence is virtually brand new. No services run there that we know.
    We had some trench work done recently but I can't see how it would be related as their trench was in a different location.

    Any guesses? OK, they're clearly not random numbers but I can't edit the title now!

    I don't even know what that is.

    The barbed wire would make them bad for butts.

    I dont know what that is.

    Googling butt pegs gives an unlikely answer

    Those pheasants are right vandals, painting peoples' fences.

    Pheasants haven't got the brains for that, or much really, they are as thick as s**t.

    if we assume say 2m between post on average and 7 post thats about 45 ft/14m what would need that space ??
    portacabin/ parking space/ caravan unlikely ??
    could perhaps just be a random person thinking off buying the land if its for sale to work out a possible use ??
