"You waited, and then as an adult woman approached, who was by herself, you then removed yourself from the coverage and began masturbating.

"One of the particularised incidents involved a woman who noted there was a mirror placed in a tree which would seem to allow you to see who was approaching the area in which you had concealed yourself."
