Tell us about strange nests in 2011

It's time for one of my favourite parts of Springwatch - our annual quest to find Britain's barmiest nesting site.

Who can forget last year's winner - the thrush family nesting in a firemen's training centre that each day were engulfed in flames and showered in foam?

In 2009 it was a family of blue tits nesting in the arm of an active railway level crossing. Every time a train came by the whole nest rotated through 90 degrees!

If you've seen anything that can match this for strange, weird or just plain ridiculous nesting sites I'd love to hear. We've already seen quite a few in the Springwatch photo group. If you have a video you can upload it to us here, post a photo on our photo group, or simply tell us about it by posting a comment below.

So come on, let's make this year's strange nest the best yet!
