A student in Nottingham was met with a horror scene at his flat after six months away after a family of pigeons invaded his living space.
Devastation awaited 20-year-old Oluwageorge Johnson when staff at his university investigated strange noises coming from his abandoned flat to discover bird droppings coating every surface and a nest of eggs in the kitchen sink.
The Nottingham Trent University student had left his flat back in March at the beginning of coronavirus lockdown – but fatefully forgot to close a window.
Pigeons made their way in to the flat and set about destroying everything in sight by defecating everywhere – leaving no table, chair, or other surface unharmed.
Staff sent images of the destruction to the student when their investigation uncovered damage caused by the wildlife – which ruined all of Media and communications student Mr Johnson’s clothes and possessions.
The student now fears his nights will be haunted by the nightmares of the scenes he witnessed.
Speaking to LadBible, he said: "I just wish I hadn't seen it myself. Then I might be able to sleep at night.
"I wanted to go back to university last week but I'm going to wait a bit now. I'm never leaving a window open again. Everyone's shook.”
Mr Johnson was left gagging when staff sent him stomach churning images that showed his open wardrobe splattered with bird faeces and a baby pigeon nesting inside it.
While further photos showed kitchen surfaces and appliances coated in a thick later of droppings.
Mr Johnson explained: “I had an email saying that staff had heard noises coming from my room so went to check and found the mess the pigeons had made.
"My sneakers were covered in poo and my toaster.”
Finding a silver lining, the student went on to explain the destruction caused by the birds had served as a good excuse to go on a shopping spree.
