Arghh! I have this problem, I dread to think what the state of my car is, Elisabeth, parked under a tree for five months....
Lisl: Perhaps your daughter will give it a clean occasionally, Frank?

OOPS..... poop Friday.... I can see that the birds are healthy eaters.... wink
I hope you were able to wash it off, before it left marks allover..
Lisl: First thing Michael did when I got home - got the hose out, bless him
OH! Too bad! I love the color of your car, even speckled as it is!
Lisl: It is a gorgeous warm duck-egg blue, Elizabeth

And it looks as if they have been gorging themselves on blackberries too..
Lisl: There were all sorts of colours in this mess, but lots of pinky/mauve

a familiar look just in front of my window!
Lisl: You know the feeling then, Philine

That's very good advice Lisl... i'll have to tell that to my son Chris... he owns a Mini grin....petersmile
Lisl: I am certainly going to be more careful in future - but there were no signs of the long row of stralings when I parked
Well, it DOES look like a bird's-egg blue, Lisl. Maybe it wasn't the tree? smile
Lisl: It is just that colour, Ginnie

Nor under a yew tree Lisl, damn nuisance.
Lisl: Under a wire covered with 'em, Chad
Looks like the berries went straight through
Lisl: It seems so, Bill!

Oh dear! Not good! I believe that you need to remove bird droppings as quickly as possible from modern paintwork as they can permanently mark it. Looks like the birds have been enjoying the fruits of their labour wink
Lisl: We did just that. I remember this happened to me before with a hire car in Northern Ireland not too long ago, and the rush to remove it all

Starling poo isn't as toxic and potent as pigeon poo.
Lisl: That is interesting to know, Richard, thank you
Lisl: I couldn't miss it, Richard - a short walk away and came back to this!
I parked my car at work just a few inches from where I usually do and found that a few inches can make quite a difference when there is a wire above.
Lisl: We all seem to learn the hard way, Mary
That must be pretty annoying. Looks like somebody has been on the blackberries
Lisl: I jumped up and down, Janet
It doesn't have to be a Mini Lisl, they like Honda Jazz's as well!
Lisl: Do then then, Brian!?
I agree - Minis ought to be banned so that the birds are not made to feel guilty smile
Lisl: OOOOO Tom!
A great lesson in life...
Lisl: There wasn't a bird to be seen when I parked, Larry!

Too funny, I will keep this in mind for sure
Lisl: You should have heard me, Robbyne!
