Abstract: We construct a $ G_{\delta}$ $ \sigma$-ideal $ \mathcal{I}$ of compact subsets of $ 2^{\omega}$ such that $ \mathcal{I}$ contains all the singletons but there is no dense $ G_{\delta}$ set $ D \subseteq 2^{\omega}$ such that $ \{K \subseteq D \colon K\textrm{ compact}\} \subseteq \mathcal{I}$. This answers a question of A. S. Kechris in the negative.
