Bird Makes Nest Inside Traffic Light At Busy Junction
A tangled mess of twigs, string and urban junk, this bird's nest may look bulky... but it's as light as a feather. A plucky thrush has built her roost inside a traffic light on one of Leeds' busiest junctions. She and her partner spent the last few days painstakingly piecing it together from whatever they picked up from around the West Yorkshire city's centre. The refuge has become so large that it hangs precariously over both sides of the amber light's hood.
But in terms of food it is the perfect location. The busy pair have been have been hunting for titbits from picnic crowds as the hot weather brings more people out.
The bird is very alert and pokes its nose inquisitively out of the nest at the sound of almost every passing footfall.
