Hereford residents 'annoyed' by starlings

Roosting starlings are annoying residents in Hereford because of the mess and noise they are making.

The birds are a protected species, known for their aerial acrobatics, but people on Macmillan Close say they have made a "terrific mess" since they started roosting in hedges on the street.

The residents want the hedges cut down but the council said it would not act to "harm or control" the birds.

BBC Hereford and Worcester recorded this video of the starlings in flight.
