The estate I do in Wooley (M1 junction 38) in covered in them. Most of my custys have now put netting up under the eaves which stops them building nests but the rest of them are a right mess. Taking ages longer than it should do to clean.

Reminds me of a farm house I used to do on the Pennines that was a right pain to do. Came to do the conservatory windows one day and there was a cow pat a foot wide and 2" thick on the glass.. I tried spraying it with pole but it was solid! Told customer I quit after that..

I've had piles of house Martin droppings as thick as that on sills before though. Disgusting, especially if you're getting splashed from water bouncing off the pile! And don't want to use brush on it as it makes it filthy.

Combine that with the usual spider, insect and bird poo on the windows and dog muck in the gardens, I'm thinking for window cleaners, we deal with far too much :1f4a9:

I do a big house on the seafront, on Thursday she asked me if I could just wash the bird :1f4a9:, swallows nest in eaves, off a little edge, as they had friends coming over for the airshow. So out comes the old brush head to clean it off, and then spent the next 10 minutes swilling it all the way down the creamy yellow rendered wall.

Around Bromley there is a problem with ringneck parrots. They are breeding like mad and stealing all the food of the indigenous species.

They eat tons of berries, then **** them all over the place leaving purple splats on the windows.

A customer told me the local council are considering culling them. 

They are a beautiful lime green, but they have an horrific screech

This is one of the culprits
