Good News - and a case of me eating my own words -
I contacted UKDetectorNet and asked them to remove the article - explaining
why (community projects : possibility of Nighthawks : chance for them to be
involved in an archaeological excavation themselves and see how we go about
things : what information could be recovered if the metal items were
recorded in context )
They instantly removed the article and showed that responsible detectorists
(is that an oxymoron?) do exist.
I have asked them to join me next year when excavation begins.
A very happy chappy
ps still not averse to bagging a few Nighthawks in the evening while
sipping G&Ts on the veranda!
