Actually, just to enter into a bit of bird-brained argument, I immediately thought Matt's 'wrens' were actually these things...sorry RTF...

...which drive us spare at our marina because they love to perch and poo in every nice out-of-the-weather place they can find on your boat. I have those self-adhesive backed brush-edged door draft stoppers stuck upside down on anything that might provide them an edge to try and stop this fouling. It is working in most places...I think...
Better plan for this possibility Matt. Just sayin'...
I admit they are not identical, but maybe they are a West Australian strain. Whatever those birds were anyway, once the boat is moored, there will be bird roosting poo problems...take friendly warning...
