Well, here's something to brighten up a miserable grey day (literally!!)

I had the unfortunate need to park my car further down the drive than normal today, to allow another car to park there. The reason that I wouldn't normally do this, is that it means parking under the TV aerial mounted on the side of the house, which birds tend to use as a toilet when there's anything silver and shiney underneath !!!!

Anyway - returned to my car to swiftly remove the array of bird droppings, and then noticed this one - which had fortunately just missed my car !!!!

If any bird experts are out there, please help me to identify what it came from . . . . looks like a martian bird to me !!

(Apologies to anybody who has just eaten their lunch !!)

:crazy: Lucky it didn't hit the car mate...

Remember the scene in Alien when they try to cut the 'egg layer' off of John Hurt's face? Looks like that $h|t would have eaten through your bonnet and engine block down to the floor. :devil:
