A battle of wits and courage!
A nesting mother sea gull is a worthy foe to any intruder and she fearlessly defended her nest with the courage unseen by any window cleaners before. She'd attack from the front, the side, and the rear. The most effective play in her book was the "retreat and fly around the building, then surprise attack from behind" method. We were close to defeat when we rallied to the cause. One man would clean while the other defended from the Alfred Hitchcock-esque death from above using our ten foot long water fed pole extension module. Minutes seemed like hours and each cry of the ferocious bird was another death threat as she swooped and whirled with all intention to maim the human intruders. Finally, when all glass was cleaned and we made our hasty retreat, she signalled to us that we may have won the battle but not the war, by promptly delivering her current bowel movement onto the glistening glass like a Jason Pollock painting.
Thankfully nobody was injured in the battle and that these acts of nature are beyond our control and all we can guarantee is that the pre existing mess was removed. I wish this mother Seagull and her young a fruitful life in Victoria harbour. I guess in a way we should be thankful to her and her family. Without her to defile the glass on a daily basis we might not have as much work on this particular building.
THANK YOU SEAGULLS! YOUR POOP PUTS FOOD ON OUR PLATE!
