Fish sellers, gravel sellers, sellers with something left over from another job, if the seller is unknown to you and unsolicited the chances are they are checking out your property and you can advise your neighbours if they are in your village or town.

Unknown vehicles, particularly vans which are parked up for no apparent reason and you have seen them parked up before may be worth alerting your neighbours too.  In fact, may be worth reporting to the police.
