    Looks quite easy to reach so if just use man power
    If you want to use a bit off something to break it down wash and soak in ecover then rinse with pure

    I'd soak them in virosol first a good scrub looks like all they need and have a scraper to hand for and stubborn marks should do the job fine

    My first thought was access. How will you get to them?

    Hi & welcome MelbourneOne :thumbsup:

    That amount of baked on bird poo is not going to be an easy job for sure.

    I'm also surprised the skylight does not have bird spikes along the ridge as they are obviously very active up there. The birds probably use the roof for roosting too so you may get attacked as well if you go anywhere near them in the roosting season.

    How are you thinking of doing it yourself and like Tuffers said access them safely?
