Bird poo and bubbles.

My wifes car has had some bird poo on it for a short while. It has left a few stains on the bonnet with what looks like lifted/bubbly paint/lacquer

Its only a 57 plate black corsa. I have washed it, used tar and bug remover and then some super resin polish. It has made a difference but there are still noticable marks.

Any suggestions appreciated.

My 147 paint did the same, the bird poo was only on one day and it sent the lacquer like crackle glaze.
I managed to very carefully wet and dry the top layer of the lacquer with 1500 grade wet and dry. I did panic a bit when I saw the mess I made of the paint work, But T-cut then autoglym super resin polish on the buffer and it's good as new (better than new actually as the wet and dry got rid of the orange peel in the paint work)

Just be very careful how deep you cut with the wet and dry.
