Just noticed these scratches on car that were not their last time I looked.

View attachment 96582

Scratches are on the front wing just above the wheel, you can see the bottom of the wheel arch in the picture.

Car sits across our drive with this side on to the road, road is a side street where kids from our street play, fairly quiet though.

I have an idea on possible source but wondering what others think?
So frustrating, to me it looks like kids have been leaning on the wing with their bikes

Looks like bushes / twigs to be honest. My old car (I don't care about) looks like that when I turn into my drive way as I have some bushes on the right so my right wing looks like that.

Yes but out back and other side of street when out.

Seen that bird again carrying a branch so pretty sure that is culprit.

Update, some interesting news.

I just walked into the front room and caught a rather large bird standing at the front of the car with a long thin branch shaking this around like mad.

Tried to get a picture but it ran off before I managed. it did actually run, not walk or fly.
Did it go ‘MeeMeep” as it ran off ? 😁
