Wire recces and wire maps are not a waste of time and effort.
A recce is done for one of two reasons; To answer a question or to confirm what is there.
Any recce has value.
Any and every wire map has value.
There are two considerations with wire that should be kept in mind:
1) When you encounter wires that you are aware of, you are confirming what you anticipated and looking for change, ie existence, extension or directional change.
2) Your wire recce is only good while you are doing it. A wire can be dismantled/erected/redirected in minutes after you have passed and alter what you considered as a known entity.
So what happens when you return over what was recced? See 1).
Really it's a recce every flight!
And wires go down to fence height.
Vigilance from start to stop!
General stuff that gets thrown about when Pilots shoot the Breeze.
