Effing Birds

So I went to work this morning in the pouring rain, sat down at my desk, and the phone rings, it's my wife.
"The bathroom ceiling is leaking, I think it's coming from the roof"
"OK", Says I "I will come home and see what I can do"...
So I drive home in the pouring rain, get up into the loft to find it was definitely leaking...

It was leaking due to the fact that some scrotebag bird had got under the tiles, and pecked its way through the felt.

So I had to get inoto the crawl space, with felt patches, adhesive, paint brush etc to fix the bloody roof. I came out covered in loft insulation, which still bloody itches .

I hate them pesky starlings .....

Re: Effing Birds

If it makes you feel any better my Alfa creamed a blackbird today doing a reasonably high speed (obviously within the limit..). Some pay back, and no damage to the car.

No problems with those verminous wingers now we have had the sofitts replaced with plastic ventilated ones. Presume you have access for them somewhere? Our old cat used to sort em':

Re: Effing Birds

not as bad as a loft full of squirrels

god was i glad to see the back of those little f3ckers, chewed through everything the little sods, and left mountains of droppings which i had to clear up then replace all the insulation. i always try to run them over whenever i see one now but they're just too bloody quick

Re: Effing Birds

"squawk" and "chitter". With the odd "caw" Clue, middle is a grey tree rat.:
