Thousands of starlings have invaded a town near Nancy, in Meurthe-et-Moselle. For a month, residents have suffered from noise and olfactory nuisances. 

For more than a month, colonies of black birds have been circling in the sky over Maxéville, near Nancy, in Meurthe-et-Moselle, reports The Parisian.

"Horrible how it stinks"

"It's horrible how it stinks. We have to go wash our cars at least every two days, and I can no longer open my windows to ventilate my home", describes a resident to our colleagues from Parisien.

The children's play area even had to be closed. Residents describe "unbearable odors", carpets of droppings covering the ground and an incessant and noisy ballet caused by these colonies of&# 39;starlings. 

Avoid another invasion

Despite the daily cleaning carried out by the municipality, the nauseating odor persists. A falconer is expected this week to find solutions. Residents hope that an alternative will be found to avoid a new invasion next year.
