A reminder, That was an expensive sh1t.
Following a day at the beach, came back to the BMW850 to discover two huge Sea-Gull droppings on either side of the bonnet.
Washed off, but in the baking heat the damage was done. Paint is dissolved down to the primmer and now face a £300 bill to spray it :-(

Or slide a lollipop stick inside a sardine with a length of string tied to it , chuck it into the air and you can have your very own ' seagull kite '

Twenty foot of fishing line with a nice piece of raw bacon tied firmly to each end. Hours of amusement, mine, mine !!.

Cleaned some bird poo from mine today after reading about this; unfortunately this means I now have a shiny clean patch that's standing out from the rest of the car :/

No wonder seagulls don't like cars:

normal bird poo is not so bad (due to what they eat), but Sea Gull poo is like acid because they eat anything & everything :-(
