Leaving anything behind in the countryside, in the city, in the park etc etc is littering, simple.

But chucking your litter in a bin so it can be buried somewhere out of site and out of mind is better how, exactly?

I totally support the principle of keeping our ancient sites free of junk, but an awful lot of the arguments being deployed to support this principle are extremely simplistic. Life is seldom best described by black-and-white absolutes, and condemning people in such a fashion is likely to do more to alienate them than to win them around to your way of thinking.

Frankly, if I left a couple of flowers at a stone circle and someone told me I was "littering", I'd tell them where they could stick it. If they spoke to me respectfully and explained why they felt it was a bad idea, I'd be extremely inclined to listen to them.
