The starlings were causing damage to clothes drying and also dirtying windows. After we ensured that the birds had vacated the nest as is seasonally the norm, we removed the nest from the cavity. We then used specialist bird proofing material customised to fit and proofed the pipe to ensure that birds will not return in the next nesting season.The ventilation duct photographed here was leading into a woman's bedroom. The smell being created by the nesting materials and stale droppings was entering her room. As standard practice we waited until the nest was no longer active.
