(Mis­tle thrush, Tur­dus vis­civorus) Le­ices­ter, Eng­land

This un­usual nest be­longs to a fam­ily of mis­tle thrushes who took up res­i­dence in­side a traffic light in a busy road in Le­ices­ter. The red light may pro­vide a lit­tle ex­tra warmth but, more im­por­tantly, the light’s hood pro­vides a per­fect shel­ter from the wind and rain. Nikon D800, 400mm, 1/800 sec, f/5, ISO1000
