Use of sound recording on Crests.

There seems to be several photos of crests appearing to be agitated I have heard that birders/photographers at Broadsands are using the song tapes to attract the crests. Please bear in mind these tiny birds need to feed almost continuously to survive particularly in colder spells - is a close view or picture worth putting these birds at risk? You might think a few minutes will not make a difference - a few minutes later someone else thinks the same and again and again - at popular sites it will make a huge differrence.

Anyone seeing this technique being used please have a word to the person involved.
