THOUSANDS of corellas have taken over the historic Old Aldinga township in what has been described as a scene reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds.
Aldinga Bay Seafood owner Derek Matheson said the bird population was the largest he had seen in his more than 30 years living and working in the town.
“It is a health hazard, these birds carry disease and literally the feathers and and faeces are everywhere and their droppings are like small pancakes,” Mr Matheson said.
“I have got a little alfresco area I have to hose down every morning, the township looks like the bottom of cocky cage.
“In the township at night it is quite eerie.
“A lot of people say it is like a scene out of Alfred Hitchcock’s film The Birds.”
