Thank Goodness Dogs can't Fly in Norn Iron
In Hutton we have problems over dog poo. In Berwick people complain about mobbing by seagulls. In Norn Iron, in the shadow of the Mournes these two irritations are combined into one: Birds who crap from a great height. The problem lies in one housing estate and is reported in today's Mourne Observer with some relish under the headline : NIABY (Not in any body's back yard) The Kilmorey Court Des Res' are directly under power lines favoured by the local birds as a comfort station. Back yards directly underneath are showered with 'bird excrement'and especially one yard which has been favoured by Northern Ireland Electricity(NIE) with its largest pole-a favourite perch for the crap happy.
NIE blame the developers for building over ground zero under the main power network servicing Kilkeel. The guana covered residents blame NIE and no one has yet come up with a solution: bird deflectors, sticky pads, Bird nappies(?) are apparently not '100 ' successful and there is 'no long term solution'
Apart from moving house, of course
' A bit of Bird Poo on your hand is worse than two squirts on a bush' runs a local proverb
(The image is of a Heron just below Huttonian Cottage on the sea front. Possibly considering looking for a nice comfort stop on power cables further south. Bad luck on those beneath as it has an impressive pay load.)
