Chestnut-cheeked Starling

In the fishing ports local fishermen leave the nets out to dry. I guess the nets contain rotting seafood and in early May some kind of fly lay their eggs in the stinking netting and when the insects emerge they are food for any birds in the area.

Chestnut-cheeked Starlings are common summer visitors and flocks of them were feasting on the flies………..
