Bob, You haven't filled in your profile yet, but I seem to recall that you are from the other side of the puddle
  Spokane WA if my memory serves - eh Bob?

Yep.

A couple of observations from the naked dog walker
Wow, what a great telephoto zoom lens!  Remarkable clarity and steadiness.  Pity the owner couldn't do some good with it rather than persecuting peaceable gentlemen walking their pooches.  Photographing tits would be much better... and larks, wrens, thrushes and kestrels.
John

Yes, the guy with the telephoto lens is probably a birder with a big expensive camera and tripod.  Those people are nuts.

Isn't that a Britney Spaniel in the video.   I had a couple of Britney Spaniels a few years ago.  Very good dogs to take hiking.

Another Free Ranger, this time on his bike. And another photographer getting his five minutes of fame.

The Mirror says, "Jim posted the amazing picture onto his Facebook page, where it was immediately shared thousands of times."

People are hungry to see other human beings.  Someone gets a photo and it gets shared thousands of times.  That's also why publishers like the Mirror want to publish such photos.   Probably all the local villagers are watching to get a view next time he rides past.  Despite the occasional silly complaints, almost everyone enjoys seeing naked people.

And I notice that nobody thought to call the plods.

One of my encounters was with a birder who didn't have the big expensive equipment but a wealth of knowledge and a concern that I would get a tic bite. I was beginning to think our biggest threat were drones with cameras now maybe I need to rethink this position. Or maybe we need  more free rangers that such photos become more common and thee papers will have to find something else to sensationalize!

There is a tipping point somewhere that enough free range naked people would turn naked into common so the new hawkers and plods will find something else to do.

I had to contemplate that strategy. I’d like to add as follows. Before that tipping point, there is a point where the authority feels the need to crack down. This can be either strategy to nip it in the bud, or get recognition for stopping the possibility, or be overwhelmed by its prevalence, either backing down or meeting it head on with war. We have seen these in free beach situations and public lands, handled differently in different jurisdictions.

 When the media gets involved, they will declare the incident a singular naked person, a movement, or something in between. I think that this determination depends on how they perceive the viewership, or readership. If enough of us post comments, write letters, or make calls, or show up, they will tailor the message to pro-nudity, or just a curious harmless incident where they get people to have interest with a pic of a bare butt and let the imagination flow. Even more of influence, is the media’s message and massage, which gets to people when at home relaxed and more of them.
 
Perhaps naked hikers are more accepted because they have been part of the landscape.

For example, that incident in Topeka last summer. A guy was walking down the street naked. The news caught it and interviewed some ignorant intellectually half-ass trailer trash getting all upset shouting, “What about the children” on TV. There was no law to enforce, so the council got pulled in with the same outraged person, perceived as representing a larger social segment, this influencing them. Cards, letters, emails, came into the council offices, but along with it, well practiced and informed and validated testimony came to them from professionals, plus threat of expensive lawsuits to a fiscally conservative government. Those influences got it swept into chambers for more research, until things died down. Most likely there won’t be another naked rambler for a while. My point being that too much nudity too soon, and where it occurs, can throw a road block in the way of lots of free people creating a tipping point.
 
Keep those responsible sounding cards and letters pouring in folks. The anti-nudes are a very clear minority as it is, but too many don’t yet realize this. Those BN and NAC polls are good content in with ones remarks.

The tipping point is coming and the media will swing the perceptions, through bandwagon mentality, through personal identification with the norm, emphasis on privacy rights, through threat from the over reaction to a matter of small consequence, and what sells papers to whom, etc.

The last sentence claiming/labeling "indecent exposure" as "unacceptable" in public shows little knowledge of the subject matter and a rather ill-conceived half-ass opinion. There seems to be a trend that the complainers are most often with a not well formed well thought-out opinion, kinda ignorant.

I always feel insulted when someone calls my body indecent, immoral, or anything but wholesome.

I notice that all these incidents are from across the pond, I have not seen or heard of anything of this type on my local news feeds. So it's either so many of us in America are so well versed in secret naturism or my hopes for an epiphany are dashed. Jbee, your tipping point may come soon however. I noticed that only two GOP candidates went to the address the Baptist convention. Perhaps the politicos are beginning to realize that the "moral majority" is no longer the voting block it was once perceived? So to expand that further it seems that the authorities will have better things to do other than chase naked people.

Without sounding too preachy but I have never understood why the human body is anything but God's greatest creation. Maybe it's because I was in the medical field for so long that acceptance is normal. Or is it the fact I was never taught shame by my parents, only later by the nuns, but what was considered the norm by society. In other words; people wear clothes when they're in public, what happens n private is your business. As for ill-conceived and half assed well it seems there is trailer trash everywhere. They do not have well thought out opinions just knee jerk reactions to incidents.

Any opinion is originally rooted in ego-centric terms. It's normal and natural. After that, when you get informed about the validity of said opinion, is when you are obligated to consider all responses to what you said and to reject and/or incorporate anything you have heard.

After that, we are certainly allowed to label any further statements however we please based upon what actions we may see as a result. Those should expose those ideas for what they are.

In other words, Jbee. Ditto!

"As naked as the day he was born"

He was born wearing shoes and socks and a hat?

“I thought it was brilliant. It made me proud to be British.”

Ha ha. Where eccentricity can be cherished.

Hmmm. Prepared and ready, eh? Is this common in the UK?  :D

Lord Baden-Powell was a general in the British Army.
He founded Boys Scouts.
The Scout motto is, "Be prepared".

Coincidence?  ;)
