That's a lot of muck

I complain about the mess that birds leave on my garden walls, on the windowsills and on the furniture outside. Then I found this item of news:-

The company Inusa cleans 1,000 square metres of ground covered in excrements from doves and starlings every day in Alicante. That's the equivalent of 73 football pitches full each year. Just imagine Loftus Road Stadium covered 73 times!

The Councillor for Health, Mari Carmen Román, announced that “in May there will be a new capture of doves to avoid the overpopulation. On average they cull 100 doves on each occasion.
