“A study recorded the frequency that birds left their mark on cars in five cities around the UK, and found crimson motors were targeted the most.”
“Halfords car cleaning expert David Howells said: “This research does have a serious side because the problem annoys drivers, causes damaged paintwork and affects the value of vehicles. To protect your body work from damage, droppings should be carefully cleaned off as soon.”
A brief word of advise. If you see a bird dive bombing your car (to be polite), clean it off as quickly as possible to avoid paint damage.
