A suburban street is being drenched in bird droppings after being invaded by a flock of 20,000 starlings
The huge swarm - called a murmuration - turns the sky black at dawn and dusk as they prepare to feed or roost for the night.
But they also shower the street in droppings.
Residents cower under umbrellas when they venture outdoors and clean their cars and windows on a daily basis.
The birds arrived in the street at the start of the year as they flew south to escape the bitterly cold winter in their native Scandinavia.
They perform spectacular acrobatic displays before returning to a Leylandii hedge at the back of the houses in Hereford to roost.
