    So I appear to have starlings nesting in the bathroom vent pipe thanks to a broken louvre on the outside from what i have read it seems to make the perfect nesting area for them needless to say once the chicks have left the nest I will be replacing the broken vent cover with a more robust cowl that faces downwards.

    Leave them until they've fledged, then clear out and fix vent. Open the window in the meantime.

    Our starlings fledged a few weeks ago already.

    The chicks would probably make a tasty snack.

    Thats what i would of thought but maybe being out in the countryside near some marsh land there is enough food sources for them to have a second brood. Might try putting my endoscope in the vent via the bathroom later

    invite a queen wasp to take up residence, the birds will quickly understand it is not a shop
