I've laid down plastic for persimmons to fall on, works well. With the 
plastic on grass they bounce instead of going splat!  Then just roll them off. Yes, 
it collects bird dropings which mostly dry up and they can be rolled off also. 
But cherries would require more tilting of the plactic (I'd imagine) and the 
dried manure might be a bigger problem staying with the cherries. Now this 
will sound gross, but I'd think the cherries would drop to the bottom of water 
and the droppings float. Pour them off.
