Old bird poo stain..what to do.?

When I recently polished my Daughters 2019 year Jeep there is a bird poo stain that looks like old poo never cleaned off by the prev. owner.
The stain is about 2 cm's dia...sorry I don't have a pic.

I polished the car using Menz 3 in 1 which I know is very light cut but the stain is stubborn and after many passes still remains.

I don't have the confidence to use heavy cut while concentrating on one area. The stain is so odd it even looks as though it has become part of the clear coat.

Is this damage likely to be permanent or has anyone a suggestion as to what to try?

Autoglym Reflow might be worth looking into.

2K we n dry and if you have never done it, just had a good tip.
Don't be scared take ya time.
Better that taking a polisher to it, that comes after. But I use a MF and compound and only worry about the tiny area.

Garage
Heatgun or hair dryer before ANYTHING else.

Have a search on here for techniques - and trust me it works.
How much success you will have with an old one I don't know.

I haven't really had any that I couldn't remove with the hair dryer and a light polish
