BOFH: Their bright orange plumage warns other species, 'Back off! I'm dangerous!'

At my kids primary school there were some steps in the playground. For "elf 'n' safe tea" reasons, they had a 3 inch fluorescent orange strip carefully painted on each one.

A couple of winters ago the school was closed because (this was in the message that was sent out) the snow had covered the steps so the orange strips were not visible. You couldn't make it up!
