This is an old unused electrical connection for a light pole near some old rundown park. The pencil marks denote the inspection times (a cryptic code to be sure) by the local electrical company.

I am shocked and appalled that some stupid random bird had carelessly chosen to do his "in flight do-do" and mar the excellence, the beauty and quaint charm of this fine piece of Old Soviet Electrical Thingie-Ma-Bob. I mean it might actually still have power and stuff...

This bird is on my list, it might be the same bird who raided my strawberries a mile away....I am sure it is him...I am positive it is him.... (or her for political correctness).

Now, I think it's time to consider. .... The last time I counted, there were over 15000 birds within 10 mm of your house, therefore, the chances of it being the same bird are vanishingly small. So, you have 2 choices, shoot 1 a day until things stop( a kinda communist way of doing things), or demand that your local power company put up poo proof connections- and instigate a class suite- a. Kinda capitalist way of doing it. Your choice.

@CElliottUK: humm....the Commie way will work here. Going to court and class action suits just don't happen ... the Ukrainian way would be bribe each bird.
