i am often astonished that something so small can make such a big sh... mess. I don't think they eat just 'berries'; I bet our friends from the bird kingdom have a secret 'bird mcdonalds' somewhere...

Washed the car yesterday, put everything away, put the car back in the drive, only to find bid [email protected] on it
- Washed that off

Today ... another big [email protected] on the roof

I only washed the car in the first place because there was [email protected] on it!!

I do that too.

We have two quite 'twinkly' pearl white cars, and they seem to get pooped on more than the others. I think the birds are cleverer than we think and actually target clean and shiny cars...

I hate the way the bird crap often makes the paint sofy, so that unless you are very careful removing it you end up with scratches.

Fortunately I haven't had too much of an issue so far this year, despite the silly Moo next door hanging out loads of bird feeders in her front garden. (Her cat must be scaring them away)

Gave my car interior an overdue clean today, and while I was inside an incontinent vulture dumped on the exterior. It's a good job cows can't fly.

Birds supposedly try and [email protected] over water car. I think the theory is that from a height, a shiny car looks more like water

Those blossom trees are a nuisance as well with their petals drying and sticking to the paint.

I have an aerial telephone cable routed over my driveway, this year two doves have taken to sitting on it every morning...they are driving me nuts, I'm spending 10minutes every morning cleaning off their cr*p...sorely tempted to dig out my air rifle...

Lol another victim. I washed all the dirt of winter off carefully. Next morning there's a 'layer' of birdpoop . Well I washed it again... then I sat in my car to read Top Gear magazine and... splat. I took a rag and cleaned it and put on a cover I usually use in winter. Now it's ok
