Hmm, I'd have thought he had no jurisdiction outside the property he's
patrolling, and all he could do would be to either (a) have a friendly chat
and ask what's going on (in a polite manner), or (b) call the police, if
they wanted it investigated.

Haven't had that problem yet, but chatting to some of these guys at other
times can arounse their curiosity, especially if you're known to carry a HT
around (with a rubber duck, not an Arrow! ;) ).  Some security guards may
become interested in what you're doing out of curiosity, once they realise
it's nothing to be alarmed about.
