    SOLVED
    I have just received a kind reply from Mauritius see below...it is Cordia Myxa.
    Sadly we must be one of the few people in the world not to own a smart phone!


    It seems that the plant is Cordia myxa (Boraginaceae). There are other Cordia introduced to Mauritius, but this seems the best fit.
    You may try using pl@ntnet- a mobile app for plant identification using photos. It has a library for Mauritius.

    Regards.

    Oooh..that is horrid.
    In UK we love our song birds...many fly south for the winter and get killed /shot when they fly over the Med.
    Sadly bird numbers are getting lower.
    Climate change? Pesticides? Mass killing?
