As an ex-enforcer of noise legislation I have had many complaints where my sympathy has been with the persons allegedly responsible for the problems. These have included -
Cockerels crowing in the countryside
Smells from Chicken, cow and pig dung in the countryside
Believe it or not sheep baa-ing from a city dweller who moved into the countryside
Smells of fish and chips and curry from persons living next to a takeaway.
and many others.
Yes in totally domestic areas there is place to complain, but in the country there has to be a line drawn somewhere, I am very pleased that the word, REASONABLE, is included in most pollution laws.
